Door mirrors
#1
When I lock the car with the remote the door mirrors fold in.  Is there a way to stop them from doing this?

I don't think so. Most people like that facility especially when you have had to replace one that got knocked off. £170 straight off and that was a non-motorised/heated one!

I like the facility when parked in the street or car parks but not on my drive.

My previous berlingo had this facility.  I quite liked it as an easy visual check that it was locked.

I think it's possible to deactivate the folding on the K9.  Don't know about the others.  Due solely to habit I've not tried it on my K9, but I remember one day fiddling around through the menu on the centre screen and the option definitely came up somewhere (although, oddly, in the manual it says "The folding/unfolding on locking/unlocking can be deactivated. Contact a Citroen dealer or a qualified workshop.")
I can appreciate that being able to deactivate it could be useful in parking areas that are secure, if only for prolonging life of the hardware involved (e.g. my mirrors make weird scraping/squeaking noises when folding when it's icy).

John's vehicle is a B9 and it can't be turned off in the menus. If it's deactivated using Diagbox then it will never work at all unless reactivated.

John, I think it's a small price to pay to have the mirrors folded in the drive, even if you find that annoying (oddly)

Yes I notice that too.
