WARNING

You could lose control of the vehicle while driving if you:

There is a risk of an accident.

Adjust the driver's seat, head restraint, steering wheel and mirrors and fasten your seat belt before starting the engine.

WARNING

The exterior mirrors reduce the size of the image. Objects visible in the mirrors are closer than they appear. You could misjudge the distance from road users driving behind you when changing lanes, for instance. There is a risk of an accident.

You should therefore always look over your shoulder to determine the actual distance from road users driving behind you.

WARNING

Electrolyte may escape if the glass of an automatic anti-dazzle mirror breaks. Electrolyte is harmful and causes irritation. It must not come into contact with your skin, eyes, respiratory organs or clothing or be swallowed. There is a risk of injury.

If you come into contact with electrolyte, observe the following:

  • immediately rinse off electrolyte from your skin with water.

  • immediately and thoroughly rinse electrolyte out of eyes using clean water.

  • if electrolyte is swallowed, immediately rinse out your mouth thoroughly. Do not induce vomiting.

  • if electrolyte comes into contact with skin or eyes or is swallowed, seek medical attention immediately.

  • immediately change out of clothing that has been in contact with electrolyte.

  • if an allergic reaction occurs, seek medical attention immediately.

The anti-dazzle function of the rear-view mirror is activated automatically if:

  • the ignition is switched on and, simultaneously,

  • incident light from headlamps falls on the sensor in the rear-view mirror.

If incident light from headlamps cannot strike the sensor in the rear-view mirror, for instance because it is blocked by objects in the vehicle, you will have to use manual anti-dazzle mode.

The rear-view mirror's automatic anti-dazzle function does not operate if reverse gear is engaged or the interior lighting is switched on.

Exterior mirrors

Adjusting manually

Before starting off, manually adjust the exterior mirrors in such a way that you can get a good overview of road and traffic conditions.

Before pulling away, turn the key to position 1 or 2 in the ignition lock.

Press the switch to position mbsymb6_inv_003b.png for the left-hand exterior mirror or to position mbsymb6_inv_003d.png for the right-hand exterior mirror.

Press button mbsymb6_inv_003a.png at the top, bottom, right or left.

The exterior mirrors are automatically heated at low outside temperatures.

Folding in/out electrically

../../../../global/pictures_mb/symb_ruf.png

Only fold the electrical exterior mirrors in and out electrically. If you fold the exterior mirrors in and out manually you could damage the exterior mirrors or they may not engage properly.

In particular, make sure that the exterior mirrors are folded in before washing the vehicle in an automatic car wash. The washing brushes could otherwise force the exterior mirrors to fold in and damage them.

Turn the key to position 2 in the ignition lock.

Press the switch for selecting the left-hand or right-hand exterior mirror to the centre position.

To fold in: press the lower section of button mbsymb6_inv_003a.png.

To fold out: press the upper section of button mbsymb6_inv_003a.png.

Disengaged exterior mirrors

If an exterior mirror has become disengaged either by hand or due to external force, proceed as follows:

Vehicles without electrically foldable exterior mirrors: push the exterior mirror into the correct position by hand.

Vehicles with electrically foldable exterior mirrors: fold in the exterior mirror electrically and then fold it out again.

The mirror housing engages again and the exterior mirrors can be adjusted again as usual.

Resetting the exterior mirrors

If the battery has been disconnected or discharged, you need to reset the exterior mirrors. The exterior mirrors will otherwise not fold in automatically if you have selected the function for folding exterior mirrors in the on-board computer.

Make sure that the key is in position 1 in the ignition lock.

Press upper section or lower section of button mbsymb6_inv_003a.png.
