    Looking for abit of help here.

    via VCDS my car was saying the mirror switch (folding the mirror in and out) was faulty and also the heated mirrors were intermitant.

    I then got the mirror swtich replaced so they now fold in and out fine. But the fault is still showing for the heated mirrors. It shows they work then after a few seconds the heated mirrors then don't work..

    So my question is, where the switch was nakared, has this maybe burnt out the heated mirror function? And if so, do i need to get 2 new mirrors or can i just get the glass replaced?

    Cheers

    That's funny, I too have a 2009 S3 and my VCDS also shows that my passenger mirror has a broken circuit or something along those lines. Will be interesting to see some of the replies.

    I had had this can't remember the code it was something like wiring fault I replaced this glass after checking the resistance of the element in the glass I had sporadic ohm readings so I bought a glass from euros for under £20 that was a year ago I think a good glass reads about 7 ohms but it was a year ago so can't really remember.
