How do I fold back the side view mirrors?

Your car’s side view mirrors fold back (and forwards) to help prevent damage. It’s a good idea to fold them back when entering a tight spot, when using an automatic car wash, or when parked on a street with busy traffic. The side view mirrors fold back manually; grab them from outside the vehicle, and pull them back or forward until they slide into position.
