    Folding wing mirror on A4

    Hi guys,

    Another question:

    My 2006 A4 2.0T FSI Sline Special Edition doesn't seem to have electronic folding wing mirrors. Does anyone know if I can manually fold them in? I tried but it wouldn't budge and Im worried about pushing them too hard? My last car was clipped parked in the street and I lost a wing mirror so I really want to fold them.

    Cheers
    Camus.

    Hi there, I've got a 2004 b6 cabrio and as far as I know the b6 mirrors are the same as the b7. Mine fold in by hand, they are quite stiff at first but then they fold in fine. Just be gentle but with a little force and they will click and fold in
