    Default First problem with my Xsara...

    I got in my car this evening to drive home from work, adjusted the rear vision mirror and alas... it came off. WTF??!

    I tried calling Continentals but no answer (I already knew it was too late). Hopefully they'll be able to fit me in tomorrow morning to fix it. Do you think I'll be in luck? I'll give them a call first thing.

    Also, my left front fog light doesn't seem to be working? Is that a warranty claim? I've only have the car 5 months and rarely turn them on.

    If the mirror is just glued on .... Stop at your local windscreen place ... They usually stick 'em back on for free or a couple of bux.

    It's not glued. It has this odd little plastic part (about Ĺ a sphere) that some how clips onto this ball attached to the rain/light sensor (windscreen).

    Sure is. In my RS Clio I had both sides replaced. Passenger side was due to condensation/water and drivers side just gave up the ghost. Both replaced by the dealer without any hassle

    Continentals replaced mine without any hassle, all I had to do was mention it wasn't working. Great guys!

    Just thought I'd let everyone know my problems have all been solved.

    After unsuccessfully trying to reattech my rear vision mirror last Saturday, the guys at Continentals said they'd have to get a replacement in. Took my car in this morning, in minutes the job was complete.

    From the moment I arrived at Continental last Saturday there were no questions about the warranty claim, just a friendly "We'll get that fixed up for you".

    I can't praise these guys enough, thanks again!
