Re: Loose side mirror

I didn't make a photo of it and am now not able to access it as I glued back the plastic cap.

The locking screw is where I marked the green cross.
Drilled a hole through the housing and the bolt and tapped M3 thread in it. Then secured it with a small M3 screw.

Re: Loose side mirror

I managed to fix it guys. :D I did not remove the mirror glass. I only opened the small plastic cap between the base and the mirror. This cap has a very thin edge that you can break with a few moves back and forth. I later mounted it with super glue; it is barely visible. The problem was that the bo...

Re: VIN Decode to find build sheet

Did you look for the Laufzettel?
This is a paper which they put under the back seat during production.
It contains some the information you are looking for.

Re: Loose side mirror

Thanks, that is exactly what I am facing now. I rotated the bolt as well but no luck.
Before buying another one I want to give it a try to fix it.
Anybody knows how to remove the mirror glass without damaging it?

Re: Loose side mirror

Thanks, I did remove the cap and see the pivot. I am a bit scared to damage the wires though.
I will take the mirror off the car to try.
Thanks.

Re: Loose side mirror

Thanks for your reply Bert.
I'm not sure, it looks like it is loose on the top.
I would assume I would have to get in there through the mirror itself by taking out the glass.

Loose side mirror

Guys, all was good yesterday and today all of a sudden my side mirror is loose. It was a bit loose before a short ride today and after a ride it became extreme loose (see video).
How could I fix this in the best way without breaking stuff?
Thanks!

I can confirm that Phil is a great person and the Highline is in fantastic condition. The contacts we have had were great. He is a generous and helpful person, an enrichment for this forum and society.

Re: Strong exhaust fumes smell

Not a bad idea Phil.
I am sure the lambda sensor is connected. But I'm not sure if it works.
I will take it out an try to test it, same with the air flow meter.
Thanks for the tips!

Re: Strong exhaust fumes smell

Thanks for your response Bob! I just found that a catalytic converter could break due to a car running rich. That may have been the reason why my catalytic converter broke. It was not completely empty, there was still a loose piece (see photo). To me it shows that a large part of the catalyst has me...

Re: Strong exhaust fumes smell

Thanks for your comments guys! [-o< I think it would be a good idea to give it a try with a new catalytic converter. Also because of the fact that the car now emits much more than necessary. There is now a Magnaflow under my car (see photo below), as mentioned, it is completely empty. The same model...

Strong exhaust fumes smell

My car is driving very well, but I start to bother with the rather strong exhaust fumes that always hangs around the car when I have driven it. You can smell the fumes everywhere around the car. The car does not smoke (no blue, black or white smoke). Sometimes it is more than other times, but you al...
