Heated rear view mirrors?

Postby Evelyn » Tue Nov 04, 2008 11:43 am

I probably asked the question before but are the rear view mirrors heated, I really missed it last nyt we had desprate fog, I presumed if they did it would work with the rear window demister??

my wing mirrors are always warm when driving, regardless whether the rear window demister is on or not.

And there's an element in the bottom of my windscreen as well where the wipers rest, is this linked into the rear demister?

It might not be in them so I am checking to see if the older models have them, I would have presumed with them being electic folder they would have at least been heated aswell ?

I dont want to go pulling out fuses if it not in them?
