Adjust the inside mirror to make sure that there is good visibility through the rear window.

For example, visibility through the rear window could be impaired if there is a sunshade on the rear window or clothing on the luggage compartment cover, or if the rear window is covered with ice, snow, or dirt.

Manually adjustable inside mirror

  • Home position: Lever on the bottom edge of the mirror points forward.
  • To adjust to non-glare visibility, move the lever so that it points backwards ⇒ Fig. 92 .

Auto-dimming inside mirror (if applicable)

Key to ⇒ Fig. 93 :

  1. Indicator light
  2. Switch
  3. Sensor for recognizing entry of light

The auto-dimming feature can be switched on and off with the switch on the inside mirror ⇒ Fig. 93② . When auto-dimming is activated, the indicator light ① is on.

If the ignition is switched on, the sensor ③ automatically darkens the inside mirror depending on the amount of light shining into the vehicle from the rear.

The auto-dimming feature is deactivated when you shift the transmission into reverse or switch on the interior lights or the reading light.

Do not attach external navigation devices to the windshield or in the vicinity of the auto-dimming inside mirror ⇒ .


The illuminated display on an external navigation device can cause the auto-dimming inside mirror to malfunction, which can result in crashes and serious injuries.
  • Malfunctions in the auto-dimming function can result in the rearview mirror being unable to evaluate the exact distance of vehicles in the rear or other objects.

If the light striking the sensor is filtered or blocked (such as by a sunshade), the auto-dimming inside mirror will not work properly or may not work at all.
