Driver Mirror Dip

I tried searching and couldn't find whether or not this is possible.

With OBDeleven I coded the passenger mirror dip in reverse, and it functions as expected (2017 US GTI Sport).

Is the MKVII GTI capable of mirror dipping on the driver side, and if so, can someone tell me what I may need to do?

I followed the same steps in an attempt to do the driver door, but instead of going to '52 Passenger Door' I went to '## Driver Door'. The same 'bits' (2 and 3) were in the Driver Door menu so I was hoping that once activated, the driver mirror would also dip (when in the 'L' position). But after I activated, the mirror did not dip like the passenger mirror.

Instructions I followed for the mirrors:

Passenger Mirror Dip
mirror switch has to be on the passenger setting for it to work.
  1. 52 Passenger door
  2. 07 coding
  3. Byte 4
  4. Enable bit 2 and 3

THEN
  1. 09 Central Electronics
  2. 31347
  3. Adaptations
  4. 17-Access control 2 Spiegelabsenkung bei Rueckwaertsfahrt (change to “active”)
  5. (22) Access control 2-Menuesteuerung Spiegelabsenkung (change to “active”) this puts the option in the menu screen.

Modules are not there to support this. I believe that they are different, its the one that is built into the door switches. Problem is your only gonna get one mirror to dip at a time even if you had the module. Maybe there is a volkswagen that has the double mirror dip and is similiar enough you could replace both drivers and passenger door modules to achieve this. Sounds like a lot of work for a small reward. The RHD module probably wouldn't work because of the LHD drivers controls you need.

I don't have the post but someone identified the different door module used in cars with either memory seats or some other odd option as different, and as far as I know no one has swapped the module to allow correct function on reverse in NAR cars. If you do all the correct programming without the module, the mirror will dip for the passenger side, but won't return correctly to starting position. Just got to be too annoying so I coded it out.

Also I don't think the modules were intended to allow both sides to dip at the same time regardless, at least not with the programming I've seen. There is coding for LHD and RHD dips in the computer though, so theoretically you could program it to driver side dip with the adjuster set to R.

passenger mirror dips and returns to the previous position more than 90% of times that I've tried. Most times it requires minor adjustment (push time adjust knob down 1-2 times to set it correctly)

I'd like to get it working like passenger side one.

"L" for driver mirror, "R" for passenger mirror.

But only "R" for passenger mirror is working.

I don't want both dipping at same time also. I want each doing it alone. Or L or R.

Can you confirm that is not possible to put on "L" to get driver mirror dip?

Please DV52, please give some input here.

My luck was no where near that good on my car, it's a neat feature but not if it isn't seamless IMO.
