heated wing mirror

Hi, I've had my 08 reg 159 diesel for 9 months and remain very happy with it. It's now covered 20,000 miles and fuel economy has improved a lot - on a run I get 45mpg quite easily.
Only one problem now: drivers side wing mirror does not demist. Is this a simple fuse job?

If it's just the one it might have come disconnected behind the glass.

My 58 plate 159 1.9 (2 months in my possession) nearside mirror does not demist. I also had to return the car after 7 days because the drivers door would not lock. (PDI?). I discovered this by accident on day 2 when I went to the open the car and missed the keyfob button but still pulled the handle and the door opened. Alarm went off and I was a little bemused.

I will take the car back to the dealers for the mirror at some point but not worth a special journey.

Fuel consumption average 39mpg and have managed 45mpg on a long journey. Car has now done 14k.

mirror demister

My Breras is just two weeks old and I was back at Western Glasgow last week with the same problem and they are having to replace the whole mirror assembly they told me it is due to corrosion of the wiring and it is it a sealed unit.also the mirror housing comes unpainted so they have to get that painted too.To top it off one of their guys chipped the edge of the drivers door when he opened it against something.
