Being the idiot that I am I broke off the knob that switches between L and R for the power mirrors. Has anyone else had to replace this part or perhaps broken in one way or another. I am still under my warr'ty so I was thinking I might tell them that it just fell off

Just thought I would ask fellow Vortexer's
Thanks

Re: Broken Power Mirror Knob (jbutcher)

I broke it off while cleaning my car a couple of weeks ago, I took the car to my dealership and told the that while playing around with the mirrors it came OFF!!
THey ate it and fixed it under warranty....

Owned my car over three years and never even come close to breaking the knob. What gives with the rough treatment folks?

Funny you mention that--- mine broke off during -40 cold, and I have just gotten around to replacing it. I guess with a name like NC(North Carolina?) -GTI you have never experienced true cold of northern Canada.

I have a 99 passat and 4 years ago, there were many a discussion about broken knobs, and I thought people were abusing these parts until I just noticed mine was missing as well. I hardly ever adjusted this, or abused it in any way and now remember that these parts seemed to break for almost no reason

Actually northern Ohio, and yes we have sub-zero weather here. We are just more careful.
