    That's strange......I had a look at the owners manual for the first time today! It implied that you just push the door mirror knob forward? I tried to rotate it but there was some resistance so I stopped....I didn't fancy twisting it off!! Do you push down and twist......or just twist......and does it go clockwise or anticlockwise.......or both? God, I feel like a tube even asking this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nope no way of knowing its on, without checking the switch. Same issue with auto lights unless you happen to have satnav on and maps goes to night mode!

    I posted a VCDS code on Monday under a different thread in the VCDS area, titled heated mirrors and VCDS.
    Whilst going through the modules I found one that states "heated mirrors on with rear windscreen". I am yet to actually test the electric circuitry, but I believe that this will most probably set up an 'and' gate. In that the mirror switch on the door "AND" the heated rear windscreen have to be on for the mirrors to actually heat. As the heated rear screen is relay time based, once it switches off, I expect that this will then isolate the mirror heaters (even though the mirror switch will still be on).
