    They just pop off, needs a firm pull though, I usually adjust them to the most outwards setting, so I can get my fingers between the glass and housing and pull off.

    my passenger side glass is fine & seems to be heated, but my driver's side isn't clearing, so i'll be investigating this too....

    how much to fix it if it has burnt out?

    Pattern glass is about 15 from your local ECP, OE VW/Audi is around 35 IIRC with a blue tint, and goes upto 50 if you have a glass with the wide view bit on the end.

    Try www.vagparts.co.uk , you usually get a pretty good response if you email them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    They do genuine VAG parts, so I would presume that any glass they supply would have the blue tint, just ask for the wide view. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    When I had my passenger side mirror glass nicked last year it was 24.73 inc vat from Plymouth Audi, so it shouldn't be too bad even if you have to go to Audi! That was for a Blue tinted heated mirror btw.
