No, at least I don't think so. I can't see that part on my mirror? The part that I am missing is actually the cover piece under the hinge (fixed arm, not moving mirror) that holds the mirror.

Oil change requirement for RT66 warranty

Does Route66 require that you change oil every 3mo/3k to keep the warranty? This seems pretty excessive! It seems to be what they are saying and they will void warranty if you cannot prove it...
