Adjusting Exterior Mirrors

Press the button associated with the mirror you want to adjust (left or right). The button's light turns on and you can then press the dial to move the mirror to the desired position. Repeat for the other side mirror. If prompted, touch Save on the touchscreen to save the mirror adjustment in your driver profile.

To fold and unfold exterior mirrors, press the center button. You can set the mirrors to fold automatically whenever Model X is locked by touching Controls > Vehicle > Mirror Auto-Fold. The mirrors unfold automatically whenever you unlock Model X.

When you use the center button to fold the mirrors in for parking in a tight space, the mirrors remain folded in until your driving speed reaches 50 km/h, or until you use the center button to unfold the mirrors.

The driver’s side mirror automatically dims at night, in proportion to the level of glare from the headlights of a vehicle behind you (except when in Reverse). Also, both exterior side mirrors have heaters that turn on and off with the rear window defroster.

See Cold Weather Best Practices for information to ensure your mirrors function properly in cold weather.

Auto-Fold Mirrors Based on Location

Model X can automatically fold and unfold the side mirrors based on location, which saves you from having to manually position them each time you need to fold or unfold the mirrors when at a frequented place (such as narrow garages, tight parking spaces, etc.).

To set up, Model X must be driving at a low speed (less than 3 mph/5 kph) or stopped at the location you want your vehicle to remember. Go to Controls > Vehicle > Always Fold Mirrors at this Location. Next time you approach the saved location, your mirrors fold and unfold within 25 feet (7.5 meters) of the specified location.

You can also integrate auto-folding mirrors with HomeLink (see HomeLink Universal Transceiver). To enable, go to HomeLink > Auto-Fold Mirrors when Nearby.

CAUTION
Mirrors may not automatically fold or unfold if you return to a saved location and are driving faster than 3 mph/5 kph.

Mirror Auto-tilt When Reversing

Both exterior mirrors can automatically tilt downward when backing up. To adjust the auto-tilt position, shift into Reverse, then adjust the mirrors (press the button associated with the mirror you want to adjust, then press the dial to move the mirror to the desired position).

When you shift into another drive mode, the mirrors tilt back to their normal (upward) position. But now that you have adjusted them for backing up, they automatically tilt to the selected downward position whenever you shift into Reverse.

You can turn the auto-tilt feature on or off using the touchscreen, Touch Controls > Vehicle > Mirror Auto-Tilt.

Rear View Mirror

The rear view mirror is adjusted manually. When in Drive or Neutral, the rear view mirror automatically dims in low lighting conditions based on the time of day (for example, when driving at night).
