3-4. Adjusting the steering wheel and mirrors

When the mirror select switch is in the “L” or “R” position, the outside
rear view mirrors will automatically angle downwards when the vehicle
is reversing in order to give a better view of the ground.
To disable this function, select neither “L” nor “R” of the mirror select
switch.

Adjusting the mirror angle when the vehicle is reversing
With the shift lever in R, adjust the mirror angle at a desired posi-
tion.
The adjusted angle will be memorized and the mirror will automati-
cally tilt to the memorized angle whenever the shift lever is shifted
to R from next time.

The memorized downward tilt position of the mirror is linked to the nor-
mal position (angle adjusted with the shift lever in other than R). There-
fore, if the normal position is changed after adjustment, the tilt position
will also change.
When the normal position is changed, readjust the angle in reversing. 

Mirror angle can be adjusted when
The engine switch is in ACCESSORY or IGNITION ON mode.

When the mirrors are fogged up
The outside rear view mirrors can be cleared using the mirror defoggers. Turn
on the rear window defogger to turn on the outside rear view mirror defog-
gers. (

 P. 312)

Automatic adjustment of the mirror angle (vehicles with driving position
memory)
A desired mirror face angle can be entered to memory and recalled automati-
cally by the driving position memory. (

P. 136)

Auto anti-glare function (if equipped)
When the anti-glare inside rear view mirror is set to automatic mode, the out-
side  rear  view  mirrors  will  activate  in  conjunction  with  the  anti-glare  inside
rear view mirror to reduce reflected light. (
