    Hi.
    I have just retrofitted electric folding mirrors to my 2011 sportback everything working but back to front?
    Operating the front rt hand window button now controls the left hand window also goes up when it should go down and vv.
    Left hand window switch now controls rt hd window,furthermore the mirror switch is also reversed.
    all genuine audi parts fitted from 2011 uk spec.Have cleared all fault codes but still everything is reversed.These were all plug and play with no additional wiring and i have not interfeared with the wiring either.As its the drivers door module that controls everything i guess the remidy is here.Any ideas would be most welcome.
    Thank you
    Robin

    Have you coded it for rhd & which part number is fitted to the drivers door, dont assume please check visually.

    Also post a log of modules 42 & 52.

    I have a set of the top of range 3dr MY12 folding, dimming, heated, led mirrors with auto dimming glass, dealer cost is about £1200

    Also remember, lhd & rhd mirrors are different.

    I'm afraid you're wrong, lhd & rhd mirrors are different because of the angles required for viewing & part numbers in etka are different for both.

    Modules are sided but not lhd or rhd & if buying from germany, make sure they're not lhd.
