    Heated Mirrors

    A stupid question, probably..

    As a shortcut to reading the manual, can somebody tell me how the heated mirrors are operated? Do they come on at the same time as the heated rear windscreen?

    I ask because I haven't really noticed them doing much, and on my old A4 they definitely switched on at the same time as heated rear windscreen, but I notice a symbol by the mirror adjustment knob that looks like a heated mirror symbol, so I wonder if pushing or pulling that knob does anything??

    thanks,
    Mark.

    According to the manual !!!

    Turn the knob to centre position.

    The mirrors are heated depending on the outside temperature and vehicle speed until the ignition is switched off, even if the knob is no longer in the centre position.

    Never knew that! You mean the heated mirrors work totally independently of the rear screen heating? Must read the manual more
