Now the ice has started to appear - can anyone tell me if you can turn off the power fold mirrors on a new 61 plate Focus Titanium as they creaked a little this morning and can see this getting worse when we have colder mornings , I have checked the menu and no option and the dealer said they don't know and to book it in which I can't be arsed. My mk7 fiesta Zetec S had an option to link to lock but can't see this on Focus - If it can't be done its a pretty crap as the winter will ruin the power fold.

What a good question, and I'll be quite interested to hear the outcome. I know that with my ST Mondeo I dare not fold the mirrors in when its icy. I suspect that if the mirrors do freeze up then a circuit breaker will trip out?

surely theres a fuse for them that could be removed if theres not option to switch them off

Well I can't find a way to stop them folding ? Ford said to book it in ??? Personally waste of time as I can look myself , they creaked today and that's first frost !!

Won't take fuse out - but should be option to turn off as I can see a frost giving the mirrors a hard time opening !!!!

Hi, if you manually fold them before you lock the car then they will not automatically unfold when you unlock the doors. Page 73 of my manual:

[b]"Electric folding mirrors"[/b]
"Automatic folding and unfolding
Note: If the mirrors have been folded
using the manual fold button they can only
be unfolded using the manual fold button."

Mine aren't giving me any issues and the ones on my Mk Mondeo didn't have a problem even when it was down to well below zero temps....
