Somewhat old thread this.
Tried this mod on my 2011 R-line with no luck.
I have found I have gen 3 modules. So I ned a different approach.
Have ordered eeprom programmer for needle sweep in my cluster. Found this method also can be used for writing eeprom in door modules.
Found info in this thread on what to change.
Glad I am no stranger to soldering tiny components.
But I faced a strange thing when trying to programm door modules.
I am using VCDS, genuine Ross-Tech no clone. But I try to security access -16 in "Door Elect, Driver" - module 42
I am following the steps qouted from @n4s below.
But after using code 04354 and press "Do it", I get this error.
Once you connect with your laptop to the interface here are the steps:
1. Select "Door Elect, Driver" - module 42
2. Click on: "Security Access - 16"
3. Insert the security code: 04354 and hit "Do it!"
4. Once you are again to the previous menu, click on "Adaptation - 10"
5. Here select the following channel: (9)-System_Parameter_0-System Parameter Byte8
(be patience to find the exact channel, it's quite a long list , but as a tip : it's in the second half of the list)
6. Once selected you will notice the old value which is 90.
Here you have to options for the new value before you click "Do it!":
a. 95 (which I've chosen) - will automatically fold your mirrors while holding the lock button and will unfold them when you turn on the engine.
b. 99 - will automatically fold your mirrors while holding the lock button and will unfold them when you open the driver door.
7. Next window simply click: "Yes".
8. Click "OK"
9. Please check the new value to be there , and "Go Back" and exit the program and disconnect the interface.
10. You are ready!

Yes you can upgrade your mirrors to electric folding mirrors:-
The Tiguan & Yeti share the same mirrors.
Looking on eBay each mirror with heated / folding would be £100 to £150.
You may well find them cheaper but you will have to do your research there are several combinations.
Is it worth it, that's down to you!

There are indeed several versions. I see Yeti mirrors are generally cheaper but some have 9 pin, some 11. Then the Tiguan ones I can see out 13 pin. Probably source 2 of the latter, a new switch (not Chinese) and see if I can get it working. From my vcds scan I see I have Gen4 controllers.

If your after a "plug and play fit" solution, then keep to the Tiguan's Mirrors.
just make sure the mirrors you're buying have all the options you require.
