Auto fold when parked

Hi

According to my manual there should be an option in the Instrument cluster settings to get the wing mirrors to auto fold in when the car is parked.

I cant find this option anywhere in the settings menu and was wondering do I need a firmware upgrade or something to get it?

The car is a Nov 05 E350 Estate Sport with memory seats.

Thanks
Ryan

Nope, you need a friendly person with a STAR system to enable it for you. They can do fuel tank content, cornering lights, UK mode deletion and tyre pressure loss at the same time

EDIT: might be able to do auto dipping passenger mirror aswell since you have memory seats.

Thanks Alfie - the auto dipping passenger mirror, is this the feature when you reverse? If so it does that already.

Would they do this at the dealership for me, afterall it does state it in the manual!

I guess local "MB Specialists" would have a STAR system?

In my experience, MB dealers simply say it's not possible (aka too lazy to find out how )

Now Alfie and Richard can do it if you live 'darn 'sarf! (they did mine despite what MB said)

Hehe having it done Friday thanks to the guys at Comand. As to Dealer doing it, about as much chance as asking to loan a C63 for a week.

You won't be able to send PMs just yet (need 30 posts)

Alfie (and Richard I think) can be contacted via www.comandonline.co.uk

Dont do what one workshop did and enable folding mirrors only to find that the frames which fold have never been fitted.

Can do it with my 55 E200. If you start and stop every couple of miles, it not recommended as it queek and may damage the wiring to the signal indicator. It is recommended to manually fold it by pressing one of the button in the cluster of buttons to change the angles of the door mirrors.
