Question Configure angle preset of "Auto tilt mirrors on Reverse" ?

The right mirror tilts way too much when the option is enabled, yet left mirror tilts about 40% only.

Is there a way to change how much the right mirror tilts ? Maybe simple trick that I didn't figure out ?

Nope, it is pre-set from the factory & can't be adjusted! Sucks, doesn't it! I turned the feature off after the first week. Totally useless . . .

Me too. I thought it was just my truck, but I guess they are all like that.

According to this thread, it CAN be adjusted, but only be a dealer.

Re: Configure angle preset of "Auto tilt mirrors on Reverse" ?

haven't looked into adjusting the angle, am satisfied with mine….I really like the feature…..I used to manually angle down my passenger mirror on my 2010 SRT8 every time I parallel parked, as not to curb those precious wheels….thats the reason I like auto mirror tilt on the new one, plus the backup camera is much better too.

If you can disable it, theres your fix!

I like it because it saves me from dashing my wheels, but it also limits you as you can't see behind using it.

In my Audi, you could turn it on/off with a button on the driver door. That was smart because it was easy to toggle and benefit from it down, to line up, them normal to park.

Re: Configure angle preset of "Auto tilt mirrors on Reverse" ?

you can adjust it once in reverse and they have tilted down, but they go back to default
