Picked up an 05 pearl white Amanti last week, 92k and super clean. So far, im loving the thing. Few minor issues like the driver side mirror does not tilt down when in reverse and chasing a noise from the front, possibly suspension related but not bad.

Can anyone tell me how to remove the wood trim panels inside? Want to cover the wood trim with carbon fiber vinyl. Also plan on doing same on the all the chrome trim outside.

You can get both mirrors to tilt down by putting the mirror adjust switch from "R" to "L". Putting the switch in the center turns the feature off. You can find detailed service instructions on www.kiatechinfo.com, you just have to register. DO you have any pictures? I have always thought the Amanti was a very unique car.

Mirror adjust fine through the full range, just won't tilt down in reverse. Not a major problem, just want to figure out why....

I'll take a look at the wiring diagram and see what I can come up with.

Description
Optimal mirror position setting can be registered in the mirror control unit by IMS control switch and mirror position
sensor by the driver. (This is so called registration operation No.1). Therefore, registered position can be replayed
by one touch even after the mirror position has been changed. (This is replay operation No.1). In addition, the
keyless can restore the original mirror position that it used be when the driver left the vehicle. (Only if the mirror
position has been changed). (This is called replay operation No.2). Abovementioned function can accommodate 2
drivers in maximum.
Function
Mirror position control
Mirror position sensor reads each mirror motor displacement all the time. Mirror position is registered by the
registration command through the IMS switch operation. Likewise, mirror position replay is performed by the replay
command through the IMS switch operation. As shown in the system component diagram, manual control of mirror
position is performed by the input from the mirror switch, which has the priority over registration and replay control.
Motor drive control
1.
Driving sequence
In principle, driving sequence is from horizontal direction to vertical direction. As for the displacement in one
direction while the mirror is driving in the other direction, hysteresis of target value ± 0.06V is set.
2.
Control in memory replay
(1)
View range setting
View range should satisfy the following criteria considering the structure of the mirror.
A.
Horizontal direction: 1.5~3.5V
B.
Vertical direction: 1.5~3.5V
Specifically speaking, view range here indicates the following
A.
Mirror control range not limited by the mechanical lock in the unit itself.
B.
Mirror control range not affecting the sensor characteristics (sensing linearity)
(2)
Determination of driving path
Since mirror can be mechanically locked due to the structure outside the view range, it is wise to set the
driving path while driving the mirror to prevent those mechanical locks.
(3)
Detection of the lock
Motor driving time is monitored using the timer to detect the lock.
Monitoring of the replay execution time: If the replay operation does not complete within the 40 seconds
after the start of the replay control, then stop the motor output and terminates the control.
3.
Outside mirror auto-reverse function
(1)
When the “R” of the shift lever is changed from 0 to 1, pull down the outside mirror for 5 degrees by the
position of mirror selection switch.
(2)
When the “R” is changed from 1 to 0, it returns to the registered position. (previous position before “R” is
changed to 1 from 0)
(3)
When the mirror selection switch is in L: Left and right outside mirror all moves together.
(4)
When the mirror selection switch is in R: only the right outside mirror moves.
(5)
When the mirror selection switch is in neutral: Nothing moves.
(6)
Manual switch input during the mirror down operation: It stops the current operation and operates only by
the manual switch, and returns to the registered position when “R” is changed to 0 form 1.
(7)
Mirror switch input during the mirror down operation: It stops the current operation and returns to the
registered position when “R” is changed to 0 form 1.
(8)
Manual switch input during the returning operation: It stops the returning operation and operates by the
switch input.
(9)
Position switch input during the returning operation: It completes the returning operation if it is replay-
prohibiting condition, otherwise it performs the replay operation.
(10)
If the stop switch is inputted during the operation, it stops the operation and returns to the previously
registered position when “R” is changed to 0 from 1. It stops returning if it is in returning operation.
(11)
Auto-reverse prohibiting operation
A.
When the ignition OFF
B.
When the auto switch is OFF
C.
When the stop switch is ON
D.
When the manual switch is ON

Switch the car to reverse. Using the control on the door, tilt the mirror all the way down. When you take the car out of reverse, the mirror should return to normal. This procedure should "retrain" the mirror to tilt down in reverse

If that didn't work...and it really bothers you, the next step listed is to replace the Driver Door Switch.
