Spider Folding mirrors.. Or not!

Wonder if anyone has had the same problem.
It's been a couple of weeks for problems with my 2008 spider.

The newest is that when I lock the car (normal or deadlock) the wing mirrors fail to fold and when folded and put the key in the ignition, they fail to fold out.

Anyone else had this problem?

Hi, my wife had same problem when she first got her Spider. I`m not in the country at moment so cant ask her how she (yes...SHE) ! fixed it. But !`m sure she ended up actually reading the owbers handbook!! I`ve never ever seen her do that!.... and she seemed to sort it. Or the gremlins left the electrics.
I do know there is something in their regarding that.

if memory serves me:

with ignition on, press and hold the mirror fold button until it beeps.

this switches auto fold on / off

happy to be corrected on this, it is in the manual
