How do I adjust the trailer towing mirrors?

Your car may be equipped with trailer towing mirrors that give you better visibility when you are towing long or wide loads. To put your mirrors in trailer towing mode, hold them with your hands, and rotate them counter-clockwise, such that you are pulling the part of the mirror closest to the car upwards. The mirrors should lock into place when they are completely vertical.
