    as above, they do take a bit of force to push them back but they do move.

    a lot of people never do this so it's possible they may be a little "tough" to begin with

    just push them towards the door if that makes sense, they pivot when you would expect them too, they remain horizontal when retracted.

    just remember to put them back before you drive off! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/book.gif[/img]
