Do you know that this feature is controlled by the position of the switch in the master control panel on the driver's door?

When the button that controls which mirror you are adjusting is pushed to the left (driver's side)...then the passenger mirror will tilt down when the gear lever is moved into REVERSE.

If you move that switch to the right (passenger side)...this disables the tilt down feature.
