    Not sure if your car is fitted with that function Chris but if it is, select reverse > adjust the mirror to the desired angle > select “D” or “P” and the mirror should come back up. Now select reverse again and see if it dips.

    If it doesn't have it but does have at least 2 memories you can sort of work around it by programming each to the same positions except for the mirror(s) you want to dip.

    Are you sure there is no memory switch on the drivers side armrest where the mirror adjustment switch is? Both my S types had memory 1 - 2.

    I set memory 2 to have the passenger side mirror to dip down to avoid "kerbing" my alloys. The only drawback is the gear selector has to be in P to enable memory 2 be selected, but stays set when R is chosen.

    Good luck...................................IP

    Can't remember re S Type but the XKR will dip the mirror only if you have the rocker switch set to a side. i.e select which side is active for adjustment and this will dip on selecting reverse. Central position , no dip. Worth a try?

    On The S-Type it has to be in the middle as I recall, else it thinks you're in the process of adjusting the position manually.

    I suspect I figured it out by reading the manual!
