In reverse, my side mirrors tilt such that i am viewing upward instead of down at the tires. This is highly frustrating and dangerous. Any ideas? i tried hitting the dsc and other buttons but cannot seem to fix this. when i first bought the range about 1 month ago it did the opposite(pointed down at the tire) which is how i presume it is supposed to wrk. Although, i dont care for this too much either.
Please help me! And of course, i got no manual with the car. Any luck on a place to download a pdf owners manual?
Thank you so much for taking the time to read and help.

Re: In reverse mirrors tilt up-opposite from what they should

You can turn reverse mirrors dip off from the Settings menu if you don't like that feature, problem solved. User manuals available here: http://www.ownerinfo.landrover.com

Regarding the door mirrors dipping up, it's a software issue with the seats memory module. Land Rover claims that you can sometimes resolve it by reprogramming the position of the mirrors and saving it in the module. From what I recall, this procedure worked for some, but for others the problem returned after a few days and the seat ECU eventually needed to be replaced, under warranty if you are still covered. Try this first:

Title Mirrors Dipping Upwards When Reverse Gear Selected
Category Body
Symptom 103000 Mirrors
Content
Affects Discovery 3/ LR3 VIN LA427985 to LA461960& Range Rover Sport VIN LS999465 to LS144813.
Note: The seat ecu must not be replaced to resolve this issue.

Customer Issue: Reverse gear mirror settings are required to be stored (as detailed in the owners handbook) if customers are reporting issues with exterior mirrors 'dipping' upwards instead of downwards.

Cause: A software issue in the latest Memory ECU YWC500690 has been identified.

The following conditions may lead to mirrors 'dipping' upwards:
- The customer does NOT actively program the new mirror dip settings (as detailed in the owner's handbook & below)
- The vehicle is left parked in reverse gear and the key ID is changed (by unlocking the vehicle with another key) - next time reverse gear is selected mirrors 'dip' in an upward direction

Action: This issue may be resolved by actively learning mirror dip positions as follows:

Key 1 (Refer to illustration 1 in attachment)
- Turn Ignition ON (position II).
- Press memory switch '1' button (Figure 2).
- Select Reverse Gear (mirrors move to 'default' dip position).
- Move mirrors to required dipped position for Key 1 & Memory 1.
- Press memory switch 'MEM' button (Figure 1) followed by switch '1' button (Figure 2) within 5 seconds. 'DOOR MIRROR DIP STORED' will be displayed on the message center together with a single chime. This is confirmation that the dipped position is stored.
- Move mirrors to required dipped position for Key 1 & Memory 2.
- Press memory switch 'MEM' button (Figure 1) followed by switch '2' button (Figure 2) within 5 seconds. 'DOOR MIRROR DIP STORED' will be displayed on the message center together with a single chime. This is confirmation that the dipped position is stored.
- Move mirrors to required dipped position for Key 1 & Memory 3.
- Press memory switch 'MEM' button (Figure 1) followed by switch '3' button (Figure 2) within 5 seconds. 'DOOR MIRROR DIP STORED' will be displayed on the message center together with a single chime. This is confirmation that the dipped position is stored.

Key 2
- Repeat as above with Key 2

Additional Keys
- Repeat as above for additional keys
Important Notes (Refer to illustration 2 in attachment)

The customer must be informed of the following to prevent repeat complaint of this issue.
When 'Reverse Mirror Dip' is disabled via the Settings menu this clears all stored mirror dipped positions. When the function is next enabled new mirror dip settings will be required to be programmed as detailed above.

Re: In reverse mirrors tilt up-opposite from what they should

i'm afraid you may have to live with this occasionally if you choose to keep the mirror dipping option on. i had my ECU replaced under warranty, but this still happens from time to time. some times it'll resolve itself on properly angle downward the next time i power cycle the RRS. other times i have to re-program the mirror positions.

Geeze Umberto nice find.

I just figgured he was out wheeling and flipped over but did not realize it yet...my wrong answer would have been to put "this end up" stickers on the back.

Re: In reverse mirrors tilt up-opposite from what they should

I have selected a different seat memory and this has them going the 'correct' direction. This is perfect. i may do the override in my options menu later on if i get tired of looking at my tires instead of the car behind me when i go in reverse.
This has been tremedously helpful and i truly appreciate the input..

Re: In reverse mirrors tilt up-opposite from what they should

My personal preference is that I kind of like the passenger side mirror to dip down a little - so I get a good look at the curb when parallel parking - but the driver side not to move. I have programmed them that way and so far I have not had to readjust them, knock on wood. I did turn off Lazy Entry as that was giving me all sorts of trouble with the mirrors position - there is a TSB for that too, but I am out of warranty and never use Lazy Entry anyway (I am the only driver.)
