Passenger side mirror no longer tilts when in Reverse?

Hi guys, if just occurred to me that when I throw the car to reverse, the passenger side mirror no longer tilts down as it usually does.

Any idea why? And besides taking the car back to the dealership, anything I can do to fix?

Or maybe I've accidentally pressed something and disabled this feature?

I think the mirror switch has to be in the left position....I might have that backwards. Flip it and then try...

You can enable or disable it with the switch in the door handle that goes left-right. You probably have it in the right position. Flip the switcheroo!

On my first E83, this feature conked out and the dealer had to replace the side-view mirror on the right. On my second E83, the mirror jammed once but a little percussion maintenance freed it up again.

And that is with the selector to the LEFT, obviously.

It's even easier than that. Set position 2 seat memory to be exactly the same but with the mirrors set to both tilt how you want them. Next time you want to reverse into a spot that titled mirrors would help with, hit seat mem 2 button. Hit seat mem 1 button to return. WIN!
