Question about 2007 Volkswagen Golf
I have a Volkswagen Golf latest edition (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".
