Dealers don’t always set it up - instructions are in the owners manual. You have to have powered mirror adjustment for it to work and even then it’s hit and miss. I have never been able to get the memory to retain the reverse dip setting in my Countryman, but in my previous Range Rovers it always worked on both wing mirrorsIf the car comes equip with it, it should automatically dip when the car goes into reverse.
Tony, press the starter but only to what used to be position 2 - everything energised but engine not running - engage reverse gear, adjust nearside mirror to see the kerb/road edge then switch to the driver’s side and adjust as you want ( most folks don’t set a “dip” for the driver’s side but it can be done too). Once set up, put the gear selector back to neutral and the mirrors SHOULD revert to the normal setting for driving, re-selecting reverse and the nearside mirror SHOULD go to the position previously programmed. One warning - on my Countryman I set it up but the memory never seems to remember the reverse dip setting after the car has been locked and then unlocked.......... not a problem I have encountered with previous cars with the same systemThanks Tim, unfortunately I don't have a hard copy of the owner's manual (I'm an Expat in Prague), and the online version does not mention how to set up the reverse dip process - any hints?
If you have a DCT I assume you have a F series. Those can be set by coding. Default dips all the way down. I found that if your mirrors are adjusted too far out, the mirror will have issues dipping down and will not return to your normally set position.Same. I have the DCT ‘box so can’t engage reverse with the engine off.
Is that something that the dealer has to do?If you have a DCT I assume you have a F series. Those can be set by coding. Default dips all the way down. I found that if your mirrors are adjusted too far out, the mirror will have issues dipping down and will not return to your normally set position.
