    if you have a multimeter couple of easy checks,
    one check the voltage supply to the glass
    two check the resistance accross the mirror glass

    normally the mirror glasses tho

    They are prone to burn out, its a crap design.

    They come on when the temp goes below 5c its why there all burnt out, mine was the same, it means every time you start the car, regardless of whether there iced or fogged.

    You can check whether they are on or off using VAG-COM, and if it says they are ON, and are not hot, the problem is clear.
