    There appear to be 10 different part numbers for the automatic rear view mirror. The best way is to visit an Audi dealer's parts department and the will be able to check the correct one for your car because they have access to Audi AG's central computer system which will be able to tell them which one was originally fitted to your car.

    It will be broken down by colour & features so should be easy enough to find in etka, when I get back up I'll have a looky for you, in meantime anyone who has the said mirror & features along with your colour code could give you there chassis so you can get dealer to bring it up, simplesssssssssssssssss

    Here is a PDF of the ETKA pages showing the rear view mirror - you may be able to determine which one you want from these...

    There is no single part number that cover what your looking for as you can see from the ETKA pages I've made available. You need to go along to an Audi parts department and talk to the parts guy. He will be able to work out what is suitable and order it for you.

    Just check the pdf, just choose number 18 for your colour code say soul black & check the year for the different soul black ones & PR codes that correspond to your car, which also includes 19/20 then also choose 15/16 & 21, of course note this goes to another page but any dealership can help you with these parts given they're mostly trims & one sensor

    Did you actually have the light and rain sensors fitted to your car? I'm curious as to why you can't use your existing mirror. Are you planning a retrofit? If you are going down the retrofit avenue you need to have the correct windscreen fitted as the mounting for the light and rain sensor is stuck on the glass and isn't available separately.

    Hi,

    yes i had the standard rear view mirror, and planning to do a retrofit. When i had my windscreen replaced autoglass asked me if i have rainsensored wipers and i said yeh yeh, then had the whole windscreen changed from, i cant tell the difference except the different mounting hence needing a part number for the correct mirror. When he fitted the windscreen he gave me this red circle sticker thing and said i need to keep it for the sensors to work.

    where are the sensors on the glass? yes this is a retrofit job!

    thanks

    Look on the outside of the glass, you'll see a small circle a few inches from the top of the roof behind the mirror. That's where the sensor lives. IIRC the red circle sticker thing is a gel pack to go on the sensor or it won't work.
