    New Member Introductions
    Hi, I have not been able to find the VCDS hack to disable the feature in which the folding mirrors fold each time the car is locked and unfold each time it is unlocked. I have no need to fold my mirrors except during rare situations so would like to avoid the inevitable premature failure of...

    Both my power folding mirrors have failed on my GLX. The drivers sided about 6 months ago, which I replaced with a manual folding one, and now the passenger side. I would like to replace both with the power folding option since I have it, but I have been unable to find them anywhere. If...
  9. Mirrors not folding

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My car battery died. After jumping the car the side mirrors wont fold out. The mirror's glass will move up and down and side to side with the controls, and if I put it on R it will look down at the curb when in Reverse but for some reason both mirrors wont fold out anymore. Could this be a fuse...

  11. Power folding mirror problem

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, in the last big ice storm, somehow my passenger power folding mirror got screwed up. When I extend it back out to the regular position, it over extends past the regular spot. It's like the place where it sets has been turned counter clockwise. You can even see a gap where the mirror and...

    I'm having a folding mirror issue. I tried bumping an old thread on the B5 Garage section but no hits so I'm trying it here, so sorry for the redundancy. When I fold the mirrors in, they fold back against the window just fine. When I open them up, the passenger side opens to the correct...
