go to an A2 and take the gromit that is meant to adjust the side mirrors.
its a little plastic cap lookin thing.
use the stock rubber washer o-ring and wiggle the cap into there.
its a little too small to just use the cap without that o-ring.

use the o-ring thats on your car now, keep it on there and just squeeze the plastic piece (from the mkII) into it. i needed to use wd40 to help, its a tight fit. Also, i need the plastic piece too (i stole one off my fiances' cabby!!!! now she wants it back)

Re: Removing the rear wiper...where can I get a plug!? (rt30000)

OK, so where can I obtain one of these side-view mirror adjustment knobs from an A2? Would a dealer have something like that? Does anyone have an extra that I could buy from them?

if u can go to a junkyard, just take one while they arent looking,
otherwise a dealer should have it, should be like 75 cents but may take a few days because they probably dont have it in stock.
