Take the interior door panel off...

Three Torx screws at the bottom, 2 inside the handle (gently pry the cover off) lift straight up.. check for wires inside the door panel, and where they are attached.

Same thing happened in our Beetle too. We thought about gluing it back on, but just our luck it would break off again...... Good luck.

Mine too mirror

I used mine a total of about 2 times and then noticed it was gone...broke off. Way too many "cosmetic" issues with this car I have had it almost 5 years and am tired of things just breaking off. Some of it was fixed under the scuky 24,000 warranty, but of course it all broke again.

Mirror switch done

Just did this. Cost to me, $22.50 for part and 30 mins of labour. Not bad... not bad.

If I went to the dealer it would cost near $50 for the switch and not to mention labour.

Ebay all the way!!!
