You can choose which mirror you would like to adjust by selecting Left or Right on the touchscreen. Use the left scroll button on the steering wheel to adjust the mirror to its desired position:

The driver’s side mirror automatically dims in low lighting conditions (for example, when driving at night or through a tunnel) in proportion to the level of glare from the headlights of a vehicle behind you (except when in Reverse).
If equipped with the premium package, both exterior mirrors have heaters that turn on and off with the rear window defroster. You can fold the mirrors inward for parking in tight spaces by touching Controls > Quick Controls > Fold.
The mirrors remain folded until your driving speed reaches 31 mph (50 km/h), or until you touch Fold again to unfold the mirrors. Note: You cannot fold a mirror if your driving speed exceeds 31 mph (50 km/h).
Auto-Fold Mirrors Based on Location
Tesla Model 3 can automatically fold and unfold the side mirrors based on location, which saves you from having to manually position them each time you need to fold or unfold the mirrors when at a frequented place (such as narrow garages, tight parking spaces, etc.). To set up, Model 3 must be driving at a low speed (less than 3 mph/5 kph) or stopped at the location you want your vehicle to remember. Go to
Controls > Quick Controls > Mirrors > Always Fold Mirrors at this Location.
Next time you approach the saved location, your mirrors will fold and unfold within 25 feet (7.5 meters) of the specified location. You can also integrate auto-folding mirrors with HomeLink . To enable, go to HomeLink > Auto-Fold Mirrors when Nearby.
CAUTION: Mirrors may not automatically fold or unfold if you return to a saved location and are driving faster than 3 mph/5 kph.
Mirror Auto Tilt – Premium Package
If equipped with the premium package, both exterior mirrors can automatically tilt downward when Model 3 is shifted into Reverse. When you shift back into Drive, the mirrors return to their normal (upward) position. To turn this feature on or off, touch
Controls > Quick Controls > Mirrors > Mirror Auto Tilt.
Mirror Auto Fold – Premium Package
If equipped with the premium package, both exterior mirrors can automatically fold inward whenever you exit and lock Model 3. When you unlock Model 3, the exterior mirrors then automatically unfold. To turn this feature on or off, touch Controls > Quick Controls > Mirrors > Mirror Auto Fold.
Rear View Mirror
The rear view mirror is adjusted manually. Except when in Reverse, the rear view mirror automatically dims in proportion to the level of glare from the headlights of a vehicle behind you.
To expose and illuminate the vanity mirror, fold the sun visor downwards, then use the tab to lower the mirror cover. When you close the mirror cover, the light turns off.
