    Paint On Mirror Casing Keeps RIPPLING!

    It must have been a defective mirror cap, or the shop simply redid the old cap and hoped it would work. I'll have to find some way to do something about it . . . if my mother lets me.

    Paint On Mirror Casing Keeps RIPPLING!

    Interesting . . . I had no idea. I don't know if it is the original cap. The accident, which occurred in December 2015, banged up my front end and never touched the cap, but I don't know if the shock waves from the accident caused the original rippling. (They might have caused the buckling in my...

    Paint On Mirror Casing Keeps RIPPLING!

    P.S. I posted about my original paint ripple five years ago. The fact that it happened again is what really vexes me.

    Paint On Mirror Casing Keeps RIPPLING!

    I have what may be a unique problem. A few years ago I noticed that the paint on my right rearview mirror casing was rippling, but I got it fixed. I'd had the car in the shop after an accident, and I thought that the guys at the body shop had something to do with it, because it looked fine...

    Sticky Hatch Door

    I had wanted to go to a local mechanic within walking distance of my house, but when i went there to get my car looked at, the mechanics were wearing no PPE - no face coverings, no gloves - and I did not want them working on my car when they wouldn't keep themselves protected in the middle of a...

    Sticky Hatch Door

    Sorry, everyone, for getting back to you so late, but the problem has been fixed. A new mechanism in the hatch door was the problem, so I had it replaced - for nearly nine hundred dollars! It works better than the original one did before it broke! Glad that's over.

    Hatch unlocks but won't open

    Omigosh, I should have sought out this thread before starting one on a similar (exact same?) issue! My rear hatch door gets stuck every now and then when I try to open it with the key fob, and the interior unlocking button doesn't seem to open it anymore. I'm hoping that the necessary repair...

    Hatch Will Not Open

    I'm having a similar problem. The hatch sometimes sticks, and right now I can only open it with the key fob. The owner's manual explains how to open it with the key fob and with the emblem but it doesn't say anything about opening it form the interior unlock button, although I've been able to...

    Sticky Hatch Door

    It appears that way. It worked for a few days but now I can't unlock it from the inside and the remote only works part of the time.

    Sticky Hatch Door

    My second remote doesn't work. The hatch struts look all right. The fob doesn't have a problem unlocking the passenger doors, but I just tried opening the hatch from the interior button, and it got a little stuck then, too.

    Sticky Hatch Door

    I started having problems with my hatch door today. I clicked on the key fob button to open the hatch door and it took three tries to get the latch to operate and open it when I pushed my fingers into the rear VW emblem. If I want to get the door to open properly, or at least get a chance that...
