Retracting and extending the outside mirrors
Starting and driving / Outside rear-view mirrors / Retracting and extending the outside mirrors

The outside mirror can be folded in towards the side window to prevent damage when parking in narrow areas.

Mitsubishi Lancer: Retracting and extending the outside mirrors. Caution Caution

► Do not drive the vehicle with the mirror folded in.
The lack of rearward visibility normally provided by the mirror could lead to an accident.

[Except for vehicles equipped with the mirror retractor switch]

Push the mirror towards the back of the vehicle with your hand to retract it in.

When extending the mirror, pull it out towards the front of the vehicle until it clicks to lock in place.

Mitsubishi Lancer: Retracting and extending the outside mirrors. Caution Caution

► It is possible to retract and extend the mirrors by hand. After retracting a mirror using the mirror retractor switch, however, you should extend it by using the switch again, not by hand. If you extended the mirror by hand after retracting it using the switch, it would not properly lock in position. As a result, it could move because of the wind or vibration while you are driving, taking away your rearward visibility.

► Be careful not to get your hands trapped while a mirror is moving.
► If you move a mirror by hand or it moves after hitting a person or object, you may not be able to return it to its original position using the mirror retractor switch. If this happens, push the mirror retractor switch to place the mirror in its retracted position and then push the switch again to return the mirror to its original position.
► When freezing has occurred and mirrors fail to operate as intended, please refrain from repeated pushing of the retractor switch as this action can result in burn-out of the mirror motor circuits.
