    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

    in my manual it just says they're only on when ignition is on! useless manual!
     
  9. They are prone to burn out, its a **** 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.
     
  11. i had to replace both of my ghlasses as they had burnt out.
    mine coem on with the rear heater.
     
  12. got them from audi, they werent that expensive.
    just replace the glass, fairly easy to do /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
