Question about 2007 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

Right mirror was smashed & now both mirrors(?) get adjusted,not 1

I have a Volkswagen Golf 2007 (simple version).

Somebody was running at high speed with his car and i was unlucky enough to get my right mirror smashed by him (the casing got a bit open but i closed it/put it back ). The light indicator on the smashed mirror works, but when i tried adjusting the right mirror it adjusted both the right and the left mirrors. When adjusting the left mirror it only adjusts the left as it should. So the problem must be with the right mirror.

So now i don't know if i must buy only a new (original) mirror, or if i also need to change the mirror's mechanism.
Why do both mirrors work instead of only the right? Any solutions?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, try to see if the cables that enter the right mirror case have any damaged insulation due to collision. But before this check a menu at SETTINGS\CONVENIENCE\ about mirrors that enables a synchronized adjustment of both mirrors. This should be set at "individual".

I need to replace a wing mirror on a golf 2001 model is it complicated? Tracy


No usually you just use an Allen Wrench to remove the mirror but if it's an electric mirror you will also need to cut the wires and re-wire them up by using **** connectors and crimping them down with wire cutters.
You can buy these connectors at any Auto Parts store or even a Wal Mart they look like little round barrows.

How do you replace the plastic wing mirror cover on vw Golf MK 4


Hi, It's a real bugger. You have to remove the mirror glass to access the screws (tor-x) that secure the cover running the risk of breaking the mirror. It is a ridiculous process, but can be done if you are patient.

Wing mirrors on 06 plate Golf TDi


Has it ocurred to you that your wing mirrors are not the electrically folding type, most are not. The switch on the drivers arm rest for adjusting the mirrrors will have a separate position for folding if yours fold. The resistance to fold by hand is very stiff as you have to overcome the spring tension, even when folded by hand they do not fold as flat as you might think.
I purchased a 2006 Golf 5 GT Tdi last year it had £5000 worth of factory fitted options but did not have electrically folding door mirrors - hope this helps.

VW GOLF GTI SIDE MIRROR


If by the spring you mean where the mirror attaches your in luck. New replacement mirrors, and just the glass part, are readily available from auto parts stores. The mirror is easily mounted using a special glue also obtained at the same store. Just clean the surface of the "spring" well with acetone, apply the glue and mirror as instructed. Good luck.
