you do not have folding mirrors. do you have memory seats? if you do not have memory seats, chances that your mirrors are not operated over the LIN bus.

the side mirrors comes in 2 types. 1 for LIN bus which uses 3 pins on the mirrors and another type which comes with 5 pins on the mirrors.if i'm not wrong, the tilt may not work for the ones with 5 pins as it doesn't use the LIN bus.

so if you want to get it to work, then you'll need a new set of mirrors as well as additional wiring for the passenger side mirror. after that you'll need to do the coding as well.

if you're planning to buy the mirrors online, search for those which has 3 pins connectors. keep in mind that LHD and RHD cars mirrors are not interchangable as the angles of the mirrors base is different.

btw, this is how the mirror controller look like. it's the black plastic piece with the barcode sticker.
