    HEATED Mirrors

    ive read a few posts about Heated Mirrors and am i correct in thinking all you need to do is relace the mirror glass as the wiring will already be there and bobs your uncle?

    Also whats the trick to removing the mirror covers to check out the wiring

    Not that i can tell, were they not part of the winter pack? they dont feel warm when i would expect them to be. As far as i understand (maybe of kilter here) but they should feel warm when the outside temp is below 12 degrees and the rear demister is on and the mirror switch is set to the middle.

    The trick to remove the mirror glass is to point the mirrors at the ground as far down as they will go, this will enable you to just get a couple of fingers behind the glass. With a gentle but firm pull it will pop free. You will then be able to see how the covers are fixed in place, they are only clips, but a bit fiddly.

    Lots of pics HERE

    According to the manual, mine heat when I turn on the rear window demister - I've not touched them when they're supposed to be on to confirm though.

    I've got one that works driver's) and the other one doesn't, so I'm guesssing:

    1) same fuse, so that's not the prob.

    2) el-cheapo glass replacement on the offside, so if I pop that one off, there's gonan be wires that aren't connected?

    I'd go with the cheapo non heated replacement losty....or has someone retro fitted just one heated mirror before......
