    They just pop off, needs a firm pull though, I usually adjust them to the most outwards setting, so I can get my fingers between the glass and housing and pull off.

    my passenger side glass is fine & seems to be heated, but my driver's side isn't clearing, so i'll be investigating this too....

    how much to fix it if it has burnt out?

    Pattern glass is about £15 from your local ECP, OE VW/Audi is around £35 IIRC with a blue tint, and goes upto £50 if you have a glass with the wide view bit on the end.

    Try www.vagparts.co.uk , you usually get a pretty good response if you email them. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    They do genuine VAG parts, so I would presume that any glass they supply would have the blue tint, just ask for the wide view. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    When I had my passenger side mirror glass nicked last year it was £24.73 inc vat from Plymouth Audi, so it shouldn't be too bad even if you have to go to Audi! That was for a Blue tinted heated mirror btw.
