Wing mirror glass Mk7.5
« on: 09 April 2021, 14:53 »
Just thought I’d post on here what a good experience I’ve had at my local VW dealer. A few days ago I went out in the car in the dark, and when I got back noticed wing mirror glass (passenger side) was missing? As car only 18 months old I hoped it would be a warranty job, but having a quick look online it seemed unlikely. Anyway I popped in to see them the next day, and they ordered me a new one to be fitted next day FOC under warranty.  :smiley: I was surprised as the car was not purchased from them. So just in case anyone has this issue (which seems quite common), you might be in luck at the main VW dealer.
Hope everyone on here ok.

If the dealer felt that the door mirror glass had dropped out because the adhesive attaching it in place was faulty / defective, that was probably why it was handled as a warranty claim. You don’t have to use the dealer you got the car from for warranty work - for a valid warranty claim, any VW dealer can undertake the work.

A pleasant surprise though if you were expecting to either pay to have it fitted or you were going to do it yourself :smiley:.

The car was bought from an independent at 16 months old, but I was expecting there to be a loophole in the warranty so I’d have to pay. It was a nice surprise as you mentioned.

I might have to give this a go. The glass fell out of my drivers side mirror this evening. Is it likely my warranty will cover this? The car was approved used, purchased in Feb.
