You'll be able to tell if the heating is really working or not, they shuold both be on all the time, and mine are so hot that if you drive for 5 mins, you won't be able to touch the glass.M5e3438 said:Noticed with the cold weather that only the driver side mirror melted the snow are they both supposed to be heated? IF so any ideas why the passenger side would have stopped doing so?
Just wanted to check if you have the same `knobbly` mirrors or the earlier ones and does it make any difference to disassembly?ilundber said:I just changed my mirrors. Non worked. Both heater elements were gone.
To remive the glass: Tilt the mirror upwards with a bit of force. Incert a screwdriver at the back of the glass and turn the "ring" a few centimetres to the left (I think). You can then remove the glass from the housing.
Assembly is the reverce but you need to align the ring on the galss with the female adapter in the housing or you may end up having the new mirror dangling in its cables while driving.
If you have heated mirrors, you most probably have heated washers as well. I had to change these too. I really appreciate the heating now whit it is so cold.
My glass was approx. € 90 for the left side (convex glass) and €85 for the right hand side (normal). Waskers were €30 each, I believe.
