Foldable side mirrors? - Ford KA Style 1.3 3dr 2007

Hi all, I was wondering if the side mirrors were foldable? I tried but they feel very rigid. But according to the car's manual, they should be able to fold in but they moved a bit but wouldn't budge.

Thanks in advance!

(Won't let me yet post a link since im new but just a visual idea of what the car looks like - from Google images).

Can't say they don't sell the Ka in the the US but from that picture they sure do look solid. Maybe one of the members from across the pond might know.

I hope thanks for letting me know. Odd though normally the car manual states whether some cars have this feature (if not all do).

True, they look like one of those non-folding side mirrors.
Googled this image of a Mk1 Ka mirror.

That definitely won't fold so that makes me wonder if folding mirrors were optional on the Ka since the manual mentions them. I did a quick search and found the mirrors on some parts websites but they don't specify all they say is it's not power folding.

It wouldn't fold via power the side mirrors are adjusted manually with a little handle as shown in the very right of that pic.
