Folding mirrors [1989 BX]

Post by Jugostran »

Hey all, quick question.
Some cyclist apparently fell onto my BX today. Luckily they didn't cause any damage, but my rear view mirror is now folded. I folded it back with no issue. Now, the question. Do these cars have folding mirrors? For the year I've owned mine I certainly didn't know, and the other (driver's side) mirror doesn't seem to be foldable (albeit it is damaged from before, so that may have something to do with it).

So far as I know they are designed to fold back.

Wow, I did not know that. That's really cool.
