    Hi,

    Does anybody know whether the rear window heater should switch itself off or not. Left mine on for about an hour this morning before noticing I hadn't turned it off!

    My previous 4 cars (fords and peugeots) all had this on them. Find it a bit strange that the S3 doesn't.

    Cheers

    I think it should switch itself off. The one in my A3 does after about 10 mins.

    Yep mine switches itself off. Not sure how long it takes to switch off though.. You could look in the owners manual?

    I dont think mine does, but then again, maybe I switch it off before it gets a chance to.
