Where to find electronic board for folded mirrors (photo in post) and control panel in driver’s doors for regulation of mirrors and windows - option for folded mirrors (photo in post).
Thanks.

Your Citroen Dealer, or possibly eBay if there are any on there......

Just a quick question, I have a 2009 VTR+ which has the electric folding mirror would I be right in assuming the mirrors will be heated too?

I'm pretty sure they are. It was only the non folding ones that were not.

No. Heated mirrors fold but folding mirrors are not always heated.

Hi minotaurus1,

I have used your guide and installed folding mirrors in my C4 Picasso. All connections works fine except folding of mirrors. I have tried to find option to activate them through diagbox but can't find any option at all. Any idea what should I do.

The BSI will have a car configuration loaded. If the configuration does not have the folding mirrors incorporated, it is possible that a different configuration needs to be downloaded, but as far as I know this can only be done by Citroen over the internet. Adding new electrical equipment to C4s and C4 Picassos has been fraught with difficulties since I've been on the forum since 2007. Frequently all the electrics seem to be present, but it can be next to impossible to get the Canbus system to recognise them.

Thanks for your reply mate.

I have found the option in BSI and enabled the 'multiplex fold back' option and it's working. But only manual folding is working. Mirrors don't fold back' when I lock the car. Any idea what I may be doing wrong?

Ok guys. Finally I can confirm that I have replaced unfolding mirrors with fully functional folding mirrors. All credit goes to minotaurus1, as his tutorial motivated/guided me to take on this project.
My next project is adding only reverse parking sensors in my c4gp vtr+ 2010. Anybody has any ideas if this can be done?

Thanks again minotaurus1.
