Default Retrofiting folding mirrors

Hello, today i bought a pair of folding mirrors for my 407, i have a folding arrow on my window control panel, so i was asking should they be folding if not being codded with pp ? Or they won't work at all before i code that the car has folding mirrors. ?

Thanks

Just checked my bsi is codded to have electric folding mirrors, (i retrofitted) control unit switch, for rear and frond windows, i was doing rear windows retrofit.
So that's how i have a arrow for mirror folding.

Is there anywhere else where i should enable them ?
Maybe rt3 display (didn't check that one)
Or maybe i will need to change my window motors ?
Also the loom for the driver door is the one from the car with the folding mirrors.
Thanks!

most 407's in the UK came with powerfold mirrors, the only ones of the earlier model that didnr were the base 's' model, later facelifted models came without powerfold mirrors in most cases. So unless you can let us know (photo?? vin??)which your car is we cant help you.

depends on the wiring, and also the window switches (connections)

mate wanted the 207 gti folding wing mirrors on his 207 xs sport, and couldn't do straight swap as wasn't the rite wiring and the connectors are different on the window switches as well.

so he made a separate switch to operate them which he placed next to the wee cubby hole near drivers right knee on a right hand drive car.

My Vin is :VF36DRHRH21016770

My car didn't come with folding mirrrors.
I changed a whole wirring loom in the drivers door from the car that has folding mirrors, switch for window panel is also from the same car, with folding mirrors, now i got folding mirrors, i can only guess that i will have to change window motors for them to work ?
Maybe the only problem is that my passenger loom stayed oem, i didn't change it, could that somehow make a problem ?
Thanks!
