Rear-view mirrors


Installation of mirrors

Rear-view mirrors have to be established before a trip so that it was at any time possible to see a road situation behind the car.

The antiblinding internal mirror

In a basic position of a mirror the rychazhok from below of a mirror has to be directed forward.

For ensuring the antiblinding effect it is necessary to move a rychazhok back.

Installation of external mirrors from within without electric drive is carried out manually by means of the buttons located in an upholstery of doors.
Installation of external mirrors with the electric drive is carried out by pressing edges of the button A located in an upholstery of a door of the driver.

By pressing one of the side L and R buttons switching of installation from the left external mirror to right and vice versa is carried out.

At installation of the left external mirror the right mirror synchronously moves. Autonomous installation of the right external mirror therefore in usual conditions is not necessary. If you wish to switch to the right mirror, then in this case, this mirror can be established independently.

At malfunction of the electric drive of installation of mirrors, about it the blinking of illumination of switches of electrowindow regulators in all doors within about 15 seconds signals after inclusion of ignition. You should address to the service enterprise Volkswagen.

At failure of the electric drive it is possible to make installation of external mirrors manually by pressing on edges of a surface of a mirror.

Memory for external mirrors

Cars with memory for a seat of the driver have also memory for external mirrors.

Any established provision of external mirrors automatically is brought in the memory device when storing adjustments of a seat of the driver.

Before it is necessary to adjust the provision of a seat of the driver. Then mirrors according to installation of a driver's seat are established.

Automatic installation of the right external mirror at the movement by a backing

At inclusion of transfer of a backing the right external mirror automatically holds in advance established position if such situation was earlier established.

Thanks to it at the parking visibility of the right curbstone is provided. The mirror comes back to normal situation as soon as transfer of a backing is switched off.

In advance established provision of the right external mirror for the movement by a backing can be changed and brought according to specific features in memory.

Instructions on application of convex and aspherical external rear-view mirrors

Convex rear-view mirrors increase the field of the review, at the same time objects are represented in a reduced form. For this reason these mirrors only very conditionally suit for distance assessment to the cars moving a trace.

Aspherical mirrors have a smooth surface of different curvature. These wide-angle mirrors increase the field of the review even more, than convex mirrors. They also only very restrictedly are suitable for distance assessment to the cars moving a trace.

Heating of mirrors

Heating of external mirrors with the electric drive is carried out until heating of back glass is included. Ignition has to be included.

Folding of external mirrors

External mirrors of the car can be put. For this purpose it is necessary to press the mirror case to a car body.

Before passing of an automatic sink external mirrors have to be pressed to a body in order to avoid their damage.

Mirrors with the electric drive of folding of mirrors

Folding of mirrors is recommended, for example, for protection them from damage at the parking of the car or at the movement in the constrained conditions.

By simultaneous pressing and keeping in the pressed position of both L and R buttons both external mirrors nestle on a body.

If the L and R buttons to press both these again, mirrors come back to a starting position again.

If position of the case of an external mirror owing to power influence changed (for example, at a contact of other car when maneuvering), it is necessary to press both mirrors against the stop to a body by means of the electric drive. It is impossible to redeem mirror situation at all a hand as it will negatively influence operation of the mechanism of installation of a mirror.

If there is a danger of damage of cases of external mirrors, it is possible when pressing mirrors to a body and return to a starting position process to interrupt them. For this purpose it is necessary to lower both L and R buttons immediately.
