Put the control (on the driver door for your side view mirrors) onto the passenger mirror position put the car in reverse, mirror tilts down and shows you the curb! (this only works on some models like the 3.0 not sure of what year of 1.8t)

Suspesnion creaking as you turn or pulling over a diveway curb


My friend, you need a grease job. Tell the mechanic next time you have your oil changed.

Be careful about driving over the curb ... that is a big bump ...

Make sure your mirror control switch is slid to the right. If the switch is in the left mirror position, it keeps the right mirror in the upward position when in reverse. When the switch is in right mirror position, it moves the right mirror in the downward position when in reverse. Hope this helps.

Passenger side mirror must constantly be adjusted.Is fine with truck running,after shutoff,the mirror points down and must be re-adjusted


There is a feature on the topend models called something like "Park Assist". It is suppose to tilt the mirror down when you put the vehicle into reverse so the outside mirror will show the curb. This is suppose to help in parallel parking.

The control for this feature is on the Electronic menu. This menu also has the Auto doorlocks, Alarm Chirp, and a few other gadgets. Since the Mirror control is obviously out of control you may try to turn this feature OFF. The Owners manual should show you how. I know that one of the buttons advances the Menu and another changes the setting.

If the Mirror changes settings with the door slamming, then its a problem with the cable running through the doorjam.

I want to set up memory steating and paraelle parking mirror and everything else that I don't understand.


Hi,
Getting a fish eye mirror on the corner of your rear view mirror is the most important tool if you want to succeed in parallel parking. It allows u to tell where your wheels are and how close to the curb they are. By having that information, you will be able to tell when you need to straighten the car etc.

Secondly, backing in slowly but turning you steering wheel quickly is the key. A lot of ppl they tend to do the opposite, end up not entering the right angle and messing up the whole thing by not hitting the curb or having too much space between the curb.
1) Line up your car beside the other one, mirror to mirror.
2) Turn your wheels to the right ONE rotation; so from 12'oclock to 12'oclock.
3) Start backing into the spot and when your mirror matches the rear corner, turn it all the way to the left.
4) That should do it.
Tilt your right mirror a little bit down; set it where you can see clear view of the curb, roughly about 1/3 of your view should be able to focus on the curb, like how I set mine up.
Try not to line up your car too far away from the other car, but not too close.
Line up your rear bumper with the other car then start backing it up.
Practice more and drive your car more often.

That function is normal to show you the curb, but it should go back to where it was. You might push on the glass to adjust it as i might have been moved when it was washed or elbowed in a parking lot.

Sideview mirrors dont move certain ways.


I researched the maintenance manual. The fuse you need to replace is fuse 20 in the under dash fuse box. It controls side windows, washer motor, rear view dim function, and possible seat memory. There are a couple that link to the mirrors, but this is the one for this problem.
