    Electric folding mirrors

    Hi all.
    We have just got a 2017 scirocco and it has electric folding mirrors. They only fold when you ask them to on the mirror adjustment switch.
    My question is, can they be programmed to fold/unfold when you lock/unlock the car
    I will post an autoscan when i get home from work later but so far haven't been able to find an option to do this (or if it is even possible)
    Thanks

    On PQ35 cars no. But some control modules support comfort operation of mirrors. You can fold them by holding the lock button on the remote. After I think 2 - 3 seconds the mirrors should fold.
    If they don't then your door control modules don't support them

    Depending on the modules generation you can either do it with VCDS or need to modify the EEPROM (not possible with VCDS) to enable mirror folding.

    You can determine the version by checking the label file name for module 42 in the Autoscan:
    MAX3 - will require EEPROM change
    GEN4 - possible through adaption


    For GEN4 it goes like this:
    ECU 42 > Login: 04354 > Adaption > Channel "(9)-System_Parameter_0-System Parameter Byte8" > set value to "95" or "99"

    90 = default value
    95 = mirror folding via keyfob and automatic opening on ignition on
    99 = mirror folding via keyfob and automatic opening on driver door open

    Well then the easiest way is to use VCP.

    Try Vag Can Pro (VCP) in google as you will get better results.

    Because with a Max 3 you need to modify the EEPROM:
