    heated mirrors retrofit...

    I'm thinking about the heated mirror retrofit again, I did a while back, but then my little girl arrived and things kinda took a back seat..
    Heated mirrors..

    Cheers again for all the replys, I'm on the verge of buying a couple of genuine heated mirrors from the local stealer, in the mean time I'll try and check meas blocks 12 & 13 in 46 central conv module and see what their status is in there, as Woorlord done in the above thread.

    If anyone has any more info or experience on retrofitting them I'd be glad to hear it.....

    i bought two and fitted them and they worked straight away with no coding needed, i have spoke to a few people and they all said the same. only thing i had to do was clean up the connectors as they had been sat corroding for a few years. I bought a left hand drive drivers mirror for my passenger side as this has the blind spot as our drivers has.

    I spoke to the local stealer yesterday, and from the reg number he says it should have heated mirrors, so maybe they have been broken and replaced.. I dont know.
    Anyway, I've heard of people buying aftermarket mirrors, to find they wont work, then fit a genuine one and alls fine.
    Does it have to be genuine ones, and genuine prices, or is there an aftermarket one that will work??

    In the manual it says the mirrors will heat up when the rear demist is switched on and the ambient air temp is below a "certain" temperature..
    Anyone got an idea of what this "certain" temp is, I fitted a new heated mirror earlier and it didnt warm up, but the DIS was showing 20 degC..

    Fired up this morning, and it heated up, DIS showing 13deg, very damp..

    While were on the subject of temperature, anyone noticed the bug in the DIS regarding the ice warning symbol?
    Mine comes on at 5deg, and then stays on as the temp drops, until -5.5deg, then it goes out again, on our 2004 at work they had changed it.. maybe Audi presumed at first that at that temp you need to be a muppet to not realise theres ice about..

    Just to add to the end of this thread, the drivers side would never heat up.. got round to checking it out and it turned out that the two heater connections on the door control module were both corroded, cleaned and alls fine..

    so if anyone does try this mod and it doesn't seem to work, whip off the door trim and check all the connections..

    heated mirrors retrofit...

    Am I right In reading that they are all pre wired but just not fitted ??
    I still find it strange that they didn't fit them as standard !
    I can't find a fuse so I assumed it doesn't have one , mirrors coming off tomorrow and am checking if it had wires and heating elements !
    I bought a convertable in the wettest country in the world who says Scotsmen dont have a sense of humour !
