I'm talking about the electric mirror switch on the drivers door.
In the left or right position it's for adjusting the left and right mirror, but in the middle it's for the heated mirrors.
If I leave it in the middle position will the heated mirrors be on all the time and burn out the element? I know this was a common problem with the Mk4 Golf which is why I'm cautious and asking the question.
I thought I read somewhere that they only come on when the heated rear screen is also on, but I distinctly remember being able to demist my mirrors without having the rear screen on.
My OCD wants me to put it in the middle position.
