Hi. I have 2012 Tiguan, and I want to replace the rear view mirror. I have got the base off, and need any tips, ticks or advice on how to get the base plate off (if that is even possible). Please advise.
2011 Tiguan SE 4Motion - Black/Black
I just got an S and want to do the same thing. But, I want it for the built-in garage door opener. I had one in my other car and do miss it in my Tig.
The sales rep at the dealer keeps telling me there's a local place where they'll install it but has yet to give me the name/number.
Can you use any model Gentex? I've seen them on Amazon to my surprise but not sure if any model will work. I suppose it would, you just need the right wiring kit for it?
I found out that there is no need to remove the black disk. There is an aftermarket kit that has an adapter to fit right on top of that disk. After all that frustration, I was given a cheap .50 cent looking piece of metal to go over it, and it was the easy rear view mirror install I have ever done. It truly was priceless. Not only do I recommed it, but it is pretty much the only way do the whole mirror install in under a minute. LITERALLY!!
I will apologize bcos it was all a gift, and I do not know where it came from online. I do know that they have it, so get yourself one, and save the migraine headache.
