    How long have you had the car and has either function ever worked in your possession?

    I wouldn't have thought so. I assume you have the function at the 6 o'clock position on the door armrest to fold the mirrors?

    If you've only owned it for a short time would it still be under warranty?

    Are you able to fold the mirrors with you hands quite easily and normally? I haven't tried folding my electric folding ones so wouldn't know what to expect but I suspect it wouldn't be as easy as if they were non electric folding. Be careful!

    Next thing I would check then is the heating connections inside the wing mirror case. If you angle the glass as far down as you can towards the floor, then get your fingers in behind and gently pull the glass off the mount. There should be 2 (i think) connections to the glass, this is the heating aspect.

    Doesn't the mirror heating work off the rear screen button in the climate control panel?

    Don't think so, it has it's own switch position on the drivers door where the electric window buttons are.

    On an 09 it works off the windscreen de-mist button. You have to have the wing mirror dial at 12 o'clock as well.
