Not sure on a 207 but on an 807 the oblong button behind the door mirror control circular button has to be in the centre then you can pull it back so the mirrors fold. If you have not got this button mirrors should fold manually.

Servicebox will tell you if they're electronic folding.

Electric folding mirrors are controlled by the switch behind the circular control, which is left/right to select a mirror for adjustment, and pull back to fold. They fold automatically when the car is locked from outside with remote or key.

The manual states that the electric folding can be inhibited by the dealer (using Planet, I expect). That may have been done to yours.

If yours are manual fold, they may be very stiff. I had that on my 206, and sprayed the junction liberally with GT84, left it to soak in, and then pushed hard. Once it folded, more spray and lots of back-and-forth movement.

thats what my mirror adjustment console looks like. I'm trying to install diagbox so I can connect my car to a laptop and have another look, but it's being iffy.
Sorry but what do you mean by service box will tell me?

Your image does not display.

If you register on Service Box as an independent, you will have access to Peugeot parts information.

By entering the last 8 characters of your VIN (the VIS), the information will be specific to your car, and you will be able to see whether you have electric or manual folding mirrors.
