    I'm back after 6 years... and I busted my mirror control off

    Hi all,

    I haven't posted in AWHILE... feels like I'm coming back from the dead ClubB5 days.
    Anyway, I've been busy over the last 6 years (married, new house, 2 kids) PHEW!

    So.. back on topic.. last weekend my mirror control switch snapped off in my hand.
    Looking for a source for a replacement. I've been out of the loop for so long... I'm sure there are some good sources out there.

    2001 B5 GLS v6 4Mo

    TIA

    I went for the cheap ebay replacement (shipped from China). Looks as good as the original, cost less than $10. It is a little less smooth-feeling in how it works, but it gets the job done. Make sure you get the one with the heated mirror control (assuming your car has them).

    Haha I have mine broke too a year ago. I just put some super glue and stick it back I even wiggled it if it's holding good and so far it hasn't broke off. I may have replace it but so far it still working as it should and only spend a buck for the glue. Depending on how it was broken mine broke at the shaft of the knobs and just remember the knobs position before I stick it back. If the shaft has been broken into pieces it might be impossible to repair with a glue.
