    After reading the FAQ on 2001 leon cupra models having electric door mirrors that tilt down when reverse is engaged I have a question.

    I followed the instructions as per the FAQ and when all set up I select reverse the passengers side mirror move up instead of down and when I disengage reverse the mirrors don't reset back to their original position.

    Has anybody seen this before? Tried looking in the owners manual but there's nothing in there.

    The link is here - http://www.seatcupra.net/knowledge_base/knowledge_base/seat_leon_faq.html

    And I read this section:

    MIRRORS:
    Early cars had dipping rear view mirrors to aid parking. To activate these ,1. Start Car and put car into reverse.2. Turn mirror control to the passenger side, 3. Set mirror to desired position, low so you can see the kerb area for parking. 4. Switch it back to the Drivers side.5. Take out of reverse. NOTE:You must leave the control knob switched to the drivers' side for it to work. This feature was deleted in mid 2001

    However tried with setting the reverse mirror setting by turning the knob to the drivers side and stil no joy.
