WARNING:

● Do not attempt to adjust the rear-view mirrors while driving. This can be dangerous.

Always adjust the mirrors before driving.

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.

CAUTION:

● Do not drive the vehicle with the mirror folded in.

The lack of rearward visibility normally provided the mirror could lead to an accident.

Retracting and extending the mirrors using the mirror retractor switch

With the ignition switch in the “ON” or “ACC” position, push the mirror retractor

With the ignition switch in the “ON” or “ACC” position, push the mirror retractor switch to retract the mirrors. Push it again to extend the mirrors to their original positions.

After placing the ignition switch in the “LOCK” position, it is possible to retract and extend the mirrors using the mirror retractor switch for about 30 seconds.

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.

NOTE:

● Be careful not to get your hands trapped while a mirror is moving.

● If the vehicle is equipped with the keyless entry system or keyless operation system, the mirrors can also be retracted or extended with the remote control switch.

Refer to “Keyless entry system”.

Refer to “Keyless operation system: keyless entry system”.

● If the vehicle is equipped with the keyless operation system, the mirrors can also be retracted with the door or tailgate switch.

Refer to “Keyless operation system: To operate using the keyless operation function”.

● 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.

Automatic extension of mirrors

If the engine is stopped and started with the mirrors retracted, the mirrors automatically extend for safety when the vehicle speed reaches 30 km/h (19 mph).

NOTE:

● If the mirrors are retracted manually or using the mirror switch after the engine is started, they do not extend automatically.

Use the mirror switch to extend the mirrors.

● Functions can be modified as stated below. Please consult a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorised Service Point.

• Automatically extend when the ignition switch is turned to the “ON” position, and automatically retract when the driver’s door is opened after the ignition switch is turned to the “OFF” position.

• Deactivate the automatic extension function.

• If the vehicle is equipped with the keyless entry system or keyless operation system, automatically retract or extend when all the doors and the tailgate are locked or unlocked using the remote control switches.

• If the vehicle is equipped with the keyless operation system, automatically retract when all the doors and the tail gate are locked using the door switch.
