Passenger mirror dipping in reverse

Post by aerodynamic18 » Tue Jul 24, 2018 4:34 pm

Guys I took the kodiaq to a local guy who has VCDS and tried the steps to enable the mirror to drop when reverse is selected. I used the instructions as shown in the attachment. All that worked was the button to enable the mirrors to dip in reverse appeared in the infotainment screen but it didn't do anything. Has anyone had any luck getting this to work as I would love to get this function to work ( if possible). Any help would be great. Also yes the mirror selector was in the L position. We even tried the selector in R to see if that worked but neither did.

From memory, you have to actually move the mirror to the dipped position you require the first time, then it's memorised. There isn't a 'standard' dipped position.

From memory, do everything you have, i.e. enable it in the menu, turn the mirror position dial to 'L' and then put the car in reverse.....then manually adjust the mirror to your preferred position (and it will memorise that position).

I'm sure it's been said on here that it won't work if you don't have electric seats.

Hugh is quite correct. You can't even VCDS it if no leccy seats!
