Disable Folding Mirrors in Your Tesla Vehicle - Learn How To Do It Now!
Folding mirrors can be an incredibly helpful feature when it comes to parking in tight spaces, or entering and exiting narrow garages. However, if you’re like me, you may find yourself wishing that the car wouldn’t automatically fold the mirrors every time you arrive at a certain location.
The good news is that this isn’t specific to Homelink – any Tesla owner can configure their vehicle to enable or disable folding mirrors based on location. To set up, go to Quick Controls > Fold and select Always Fold Mirrors at this Location. When your car approaches a saved location, the mirrors will fold. When you leave the location, they will unfold.
If your car is equipped with HomeLink, then you can also integrate auto-folding mirrors with your garage. To do so, go to HomeLink > Auto-Fold and select Enable Auto-Fold for this Garage. This way, when you pull into the garage, the mirrors will automatically fold.
To disable mirror folding completely, check out the “Mirrors” section of the user manual. It provides information about how to configure and disable folding mirrors at a particular location.
It’s important to note that even after disabling folding mirrors at a certain location, there may still be times when your car folds them anyway. The best way to ensure that they don’t fold is by manually adjusting them each time you enter or exit a space.
Overall, I think it’s great that Tesla has given us the ability to control our side mirrors as we please. Whether you prefer having them fold automatically or not, it’s nice to have the option available.If you’re having trouble disabling the “fold mirrors at this location” feature, don’t worry – it can be done. Just follow the steps outlined above and you should have no problem getting your car to behave as desired.
