    passenger side mirror

    when i switch the button on for heated mirrors, the passenger side mirror does not get warm, drivers side is ok, and rear window demist no probs.

    what is the prob, and can it be easily fixed?

    Don't think the problem is the heated mirror relay, otherwise neither mirror would warm up. I would say its more likely that the heating element in your glass has gone.

    I've not had my mirrors to bits yet so don't know if the element is integral to the glass or just a pad that can be changed and re applied to the glass.

    Having said that, it may just be a loose connection at the mirror end. I take it the mirror is still moving?

    I'm no expert but the multitimer module controls the heated mirror relay, the relay then sends the voltage via only 1 terminal to the heater elements.
    If 1 mirror warms up but the other does not then i would bet e couple of quid on the problem being the heater element itself or a loose connection at the mirror end.
