Rear View mirror!

I'm absolutely & hopelessly in love with my 2006 V6 Black touareg. Everything abt the car fascinates me. Except the rear view mirror. It has a huge blind spot, I've been extremly lucky on quite a few occasions not to have side ended other vehicles, especially while shifting lanes. Any suggestions pls??

Quick Question: My wife was adjusting the rear view mirror manually and apparently it is dangling by the wires off the windshield. :<.
Anyone know how to put it back up?

I second that, why they are not standard issue on ALL vehicles is beyond me.

Local autoparts stores sell a special glue for rearview mirrors.

Thanks!

Thanks JKUCSMA!

I thought I needed a special part from Volkswagon because of the rain sensors..... but nope....
Actually I had to take the whole rear view mirror apart and then glue the little black piece to the windshield (hold for 3 minutes) and then put the remaining rear view mirror back together.
There is a special piece that attaches to the windshield that is for the Rain Sensor (Rubber)... If this is not contacting the windshield your wipers will not work with the Rain sensor.....
Volkswagon does not do this.. so I had to be creative and play around with this for a bit to make sure that the rain sensors work.... (opened the sunroof, stuck my head out and poured a bottle of water above the rain sensor on the windshield! :>)

When you sell that one and buy a new Touareg they now have side scan sensors just like the front and back radar sensors.........

Tyre Wear

I have a lot of uneven tyre wear, the first set of tyres lasted me 35,000 kms. Is that normal?? The dealer says it is!?!?

35,000 kilometers=just short of 22,000 miles. Depending on which tires you have, and what size, this may be very normal. I've heard of people with 19" Pirellis and Continentals replacing them at 15,000 miles (or less in some cases).

If you have uneven tire wear the most likely culprit is that your Touareg is out of alignment. I'd get an alignment done and make sure it's within spec before you burn up another set of tires.

Good luck,
Matt
