VW rotary knob for electric exterior mirror broke off.
I think it is a common issue.
Not sure if can super glue back, chances are will have to change the whole panel.
Can carclick do it, and if yes can they source it for me?
Or should I get from stockist in Singapore or Malaysia?
Thanks
Consider accessories shop too. Else get it from SG then bring in if heading in.

Yo bro thanks for fast reply.
I using 5w-30
Previously using penrite very smooth n quiet.
Then just change to motul 8100excess. Abit noisy leh.

I thinking want change out the oil Liao just buy new oil.
Try adding some Lubegard protectant first before you change out the oil. I am facing the same exact situation as you but using PUP. Engine very noisy.

Checked the specs of the 30wt Penrite oil which you mentioned and it seems like Penrite is slightly thicker at 100C compared to Motul 8100.

Okay bro. Thanks but donít like adding additives to my car.
Will change out to penrite oil when I received the item.

I am using this motul with extra fuel economy seems to thin for my car.

Below 60km/h quite rough n noisy but above 60 not noisy

Think I better stick to same EO next time.

So the whole workshop only him and ah Hong.. Hopefully they do a good job for my car. Ah Hong was surprised that I am using 0w40 EO. I prefer mobil 1 EO over shell helix.

I think their workmanship pretty good. Ah Yuan actually checked very thoroughly when I told him I suspect engine mount issue or belt pulley issue.

Can I look for ah yuan to fix my rear bumper? Realize there is a noticeable gap between my bumper and tail lights on the right side.
