My aircon use to pack up on my old Altea, I use to pull the ac motor fuse to fix it. Basically it was a faulty connection once it packed up, to reset the unit you pulled the fuse. Cheaper than the £800 repair. A general warning pulling fuses under the steering wheel isn't likely to cause error flags that need to be reset by a garage, pulling fuses under the bonnet may well do. Been there in the past.

I only found out that our car has folding in door mirrors today but it will only work by manually pressing the button it won't work automatically when parked even with the setting at 0. Am I best off taking it to my local Seat dealers or shall I just try disconnecting and reconnecting the battery?

They do not fold automatically. You need to keep the button pressed for over a second.

Do they fold when you move the mirror control knob in the door to the fold position?
