How do I adjust the power side view mirrors?

Side view mirrors are important safety features that increase your visibility when you’re driving. Before operating your vehicle, you should always adjust the side view mirrors so that you have maximum visibility. Adjusting your side view mirrors is easy: 1. Locate the mirror control switches on the inside of the driver’s door. 2. Set the L/R selector switch to L (Left). 3. Use the mirror position adjustment switch to move the left mirror into the optimal position. 4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with the right mirror. 5. Return the selector switch to the center position.
