During a recent VCDS scan, I found the passenger side door mirror heating element was not working, this was confirmed by a visual check as well. Normally I would of just bit the bullet and bought a new one, however being auto dimming, Audi wanted the equivalent of half a kidney for one or £170 in real money.
I asked whether this would be covered under the Approved warranty scheme, they made the appropriate phone call and were told no.
On page 6 of the warranty booklet it states
"All bodywork, glass including heated rear screens and seals" are NOT covered.
It doesn't specifically mention mirrors at all
Now I can understand the reason for the rear heated screen not to be covered as the elements are exposed and can be scratched, but surely a failed heating element in the mirror itself should be covered after all it's just another electrical component
I plan on ringing the warranty department direct but any advice would be appreciated
