    +1 for what NHN said when I checked mine I saw the 2 wires on the mirror it wasn't untill I looked closer that I realised the connectors were just pushed onto plastic tabs on the backs of the mirrors which was to keep them out of the way

    Check that they are actually connected to metal tabs and that you have a heater element on the back of the glass

    If not you just need to get a heated mirror from Audi and push the connectors onto the metal tabs on the new mirror and hey presto they work when you press the rear Demist button

    They also don't work unless its below a certain temp outside

    Tilt it forward, get your fingers behind spread evenly & apply pressure slowly towards you, should pop of, dont apply pressure in one small area or it'll crack.
