Heated door mirror......................

My N/S door mirror did not defrost this morning!!

There is power to the unit as the electric adjustment works, and i don't believe it's a fuse issue either as the rear screen and O/S unit worked.

Anybody any thoughts??

Re: Heated door mirror......................

I have exactly the same problem on my 156 JTD. o/s mirror though. I also came to the same conclusion that the fuses are fine as n/s and rear screen works.

All I can assume is that a wire has corroded/broken in the heating element behind the mirror causing the circuit to be open. That happened on my old Laguna years ago. I just haven't got around to popping the mirror apart to have a look yet as it is way down the priority list of faults with my car at the moment.
