How do I manually dim the rearview mirror?

The rearview mirror is a very important safety feature that offers you visibility out of your rear window. At night, however, the glare from surrounding vehicles can reflect off of the rearview mirror and cause unsafe visibility issues for you. To combat this, your rearview mirror has a dimming feature. To use the dimming feature, grab the tab on the bottom of the mirror, and pull it towards the back of the vehicle. Push the tab back towards the front of the vehicle when you next drive during the daytime.
