Question sprinter side mirrors

Are the side mirrors supposed to "bend" back? After our last oil change, we noticed that the passenger mirror was out of adjustment. The dealer's car wash must have bumped it back. We were able to push back to the original position. My question is - are they supposed to move back. It would be nice for narrow tunnels or on a ferry.

Yes, that is how they work.

Someone had mentioned on an earlier post that the mirrors do go back, but that they require quite a bit of force to do so.

So the mirrors fold out? I would think they would fold in towards the vehicle (like my truck mirrors) but never put enough pressure on them to do, afraid I would break them! Thanks for clarifying this!

Mine also fold in toward the door. In other words, towards the rear of the coach. Three notches.
