WARNING

Power folding outside mirror



Do not touch a power folding outside mirror while it is moving:

Touching the power folding outside mirror when it is moving is dangerous. Your hand could be pinched and injured or the mirror could be damaged.

Use the outside mirror switch to set the mirror to the on-road position:

Setting the power folding outside mirror to the on-road position by hand is dangerous. The mirror will not lock in position and will prevent effective rearview visibility.

Only operate the power folding outside mirror with the vehicle safely parked: Operating the power folding outside mirror while the vehicle is moving is dangerous.

The ignition must be switched to ACC or ON position.

To fold, rotate the outside mirror switch.

To return the mirror to the driving position, rotate the switch to the center position.
