Introduction

Function of Each Mirror

Rear-View Mirror

How to Adjust the Rear-View Mirror:

  • Position for Maximum Visibility: Adjust the mirror so that you can see as much of the road behind you as possible while minimizing the view of the back seat.
  • Angle Correctly: Ensure the mirror is angled to give a clear, unobstructed view through the rear window.

Side Mirrors

How to Adjust the Side Mirrors:

  • Position Back to the Road: Adjust the mirrors so they are pointing back at the road behind you.
  • Avoid Showing Your Vehicle: The mirrors should not show your own vehicle or be angled up or down unnecessarily.
  • Minimize Blind Spots: Adjust to cover the maximum area around your car, minimizing blind spots as much as possible.

How to Adjust Your Mirrors

Steps to Adjust Your Mirrors:

  1. Sit in the Driver’s Seat: Ensure you are in your normal driving position.
  2. Adjust Rear-View Mirror: Move the rear-view mirror until you can see the entire rear window.
  3. Adjust Side Mirrors: Lean your head to the left until it almost touches the window. Adjust the left side mirror so you just see the side of your car. Lean to the right, towards the center of the car, and adjust the right mirror the same way.
  4. Check Blind Spots: Make minor adjustments to ensure that your blind spots are minimized.
