      2019 VW Atlas SEL R-Line
      01-15-2020 11:53 PM #1
      I recently purchased a 2019 Atlas SEL R-Line and so far it has been great. Our only complaint was the lack of bass from the stock stereo, so I had a JBL BassPro Hub installed the other day.

      However, it appears that since the install, the drivers side mirror will no longer auto tilt when in reverse. If the knob is set to R, the right side will still auto tilt, however the left side will not move no matter what the knob position. I can manually move it with the knob, but the auto function does not work. I verified that it is enabled in the settings. Any ideas?

      You need to have the pointer to the passenger side window. If you have it set anywhere else the passenger side will no tilt down. And just in case, the driver side does not tilt down in reverse and I see no string to have tilt down

      So the drivers side does not auto tilt eh? We've had it do that on all our recent cars so maybe just assumed it did on the Atlas as well. Thanks.

      Only the passenger side tilts on European brand cars for some reason. On Asian and American brand cars, often times both tilt.

      Yeah, the driver's side never tilted. I turned off my passenger side tilt too as 99% of the time I am not parallel parking and don't want it tilting.
