Hi everyone, my name is Manuel. Years ago I bought a Citroen Xantia and since then I have been in love with the hydropneumatic suspension. I have been looking for a c6 2.7hdi for a year, and finally found it. It has 150,000 kms and all the revisions in citroen. I have used it for 5000 kms and I have done all the maintenance and rear egr change (it was broken in its electronic part). Everything works fine on my c6, everything except the folding of the mirrors. I have done the tests of the actuators from diagbox, and they fold and unfold perfectly, but from the door control and when opening and closing the car they neither fold nor unfold. I have done a thousand more tests, and I have even changed the motors, but they do not fold or unfold. The door control does all its functions well, except folding and the function of the right rear window that only goes down with the comfort function, it does not go down in sections.I need help, I am one of those who like to have the car as a collector's item and I want my mirrors to fold. To guide you, I can comment that I bought the car in the north of Germany, perhaps they would do some trick to block them due to snow and ice, it is to raise all the hypotheses to the desperate.I leave you some photos of the car, greetings from Madrid and thanks for your help.

Have you tried the knob ("c") in the drivers door as well?
Pushing it backwards should fold/unfold the mirrors...

I had strange/unreliable mirror behavior and it was solved by replacing the switch in the driver's door.

Hello friends, everything is solved now. The mirrors were overridden with diagbox. I have already found the route to reactivate them:
Go to bsi/repair/telecoding/manual telecoding/customer customization/multiplex electric folding mirrors (set the option to yes) and press the gear in the lower right corner to memorize the value.

Do it with the engine off and the ignition on.
Greetings, I hope it helps more people.
