Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Finding my feet....


Recommended Posts

After 2 Skoda Yeti's can I ask the  all-knowing forum if:

The Rav4 (2018 Design) can be configured to auto-fold the door mirrors (and unfold!)


As mine was registered in October 2018, would it have had a Gasoline Particulate Filter fitted - or did Hybrids have exemption?


I'm sure I'll have more questions later..

Thanks in advance

Bill 😊

My guesses (so quite possibly wrong! 😝 )

mirror auto-fold - not without adding extra hardware (I believe under £25 from alibaba or such).

I suspect not - imo the important date would actually be when it was manufactured not registered & typically new legislation comes in earlier on new models being homologated with existing models already in production given a year or so to come into line for new production.

Thanks Scott

The Skoda (as many VAG products) can be coded to do many things. The mirrors will fold with the central locking key fob or by coding it to automatically fold when locked. They always unfold with ignition on. 

It was quite a shock moving off to see the mirrors still folded. I thought that would be a no-no on safety grounds at least - whether they unfolded as speed builds up I cannot tell as I didn't hang about and pressed the button.


Cheers, Bill 😊
