External rear-view mirrors

1 Switch for adjustment of position of a mirror in four directions.
2 Switch from one mirror on another.
3 Klavisha* for data and cultivation of mirrors.

As a result of pressing a mirror key nestle on a body or get divorced in the parties that is convenient at journey through a sink, at movement on narrow streets, and also for return of mirrors to a starting position if they were earlier casually displaced forward.

To press mirrors to a body it is possible, only if speed of the car does not exceed 10 km/h.

Position of mirrors can be regulated and manually, turning them for a fringing of glasses.

External, асферически изогнутая* the part of a reflecting surface provides at some distortion of the image больший review sector in comparison with internal, выпуклой* a part the corner of the back review As a result increases and the so-called "dead" zone is reduced.

The distant mirror from the driver has more convex reflective surface in comparison with a mirror on a door of the driver. Visible subjects in it seem more remote, than actually. It is therefore only conditionally suitable for an estimation of distance to moving vehicles.

The told concerns and to external асферически the bent part of a mirror.


The heating of both mirrors is carried out automatically depending on air temperature at ignition key turn in position 2.

Rear-view mirror in salon

For reduction of blinding action of headlights going behind cars it is necessary to turn forward small рычажок.

Cosmetic mirrors with подсветкой*

To take advantage of a mirror, cast away a sun-protection peak downwards and if the mirror is closed, shift its cover aside.

Illumination of mirrors joins already at ignition key installation in position 1.

Sun-protection peaks

It is possible not only to throw back peaks downwards, but also to take aside to lateral glasses.

Neosticking together (automatically blacked out) mirror back вида* in salon

Reflective ability of a mirror automatically smoothly decreases depending on brightness of the general illumination and blinding action of headlights going behind cars.

The mirror reduces blinding influence of headlights moving behind cars, depending on its intensity, and at its termination - restores initial level of the reflective ability. The light gauge directed forward measures intensity of light in the mirror case in front of the car. The second light gauge is in the mirror. The electronic system of adjustment compares values of intensity of light in front and behind.

The difference of values is the defining size for change of electric pressure on желеобразном a mirror layer.

This layer reacts to change of pressure and provides smooth blackout of a mirror.

Thus, necessity most disappears to regulate degree of blackout of a mirror that allows the driver to concentrate the attention to road completely.

At inclusion of transfer of a backing or while translating control lever АТ in position R the mirror is automatically switched to a mode of full reflexion without blackout.

For normal work of a mirror it is important to cover and keep nothing clean its photo cells. One photo cell (it is shown by an arrow) is in a mirror, and another - on its underside.

Address also to Section the Mirror of an interior with automatic blackout.
