My dealer said you had to activate the dashboard demister switch AND have the mirror switch on the demist setting for the mirrors to clear i.e. you could demist the rear screen and mirrors, or just the rear screen - you could not demist the mirrors alone.
I can't say I've had occasion to demist the rear screen or mirrors yet, so don't know if what I was told is correct. The mirror switch has been set to demist since I got the car from the dealer (four months ago).
Hi i had the winter pack fitted to my up which includes heated mirrors. The rear screen button is a seperate function so forget that for the mirrors!
On the electric mirror adjustment switch on the drivers door, turn the dial so it points forward towards the front of the car. This is the only way to heat the mirrors if the option is fitted to your car. i have used them on the cold mornings we have had so far and they work fairly quickly.....no grumbles here!
I am the owner of a 2012 "White Up" for 3 months now, and this car is also equiped with this electrical side mirror heating.
I can see no background lightning in the mirror control knob and the switches for the electrical windows.
Please tell me if this is "normal", or should the electrical switches and knob also be lighted up like the rest of the interiour controls ?
In my case I had the embarrassment of reporting to my dealer that the heated mirrors didn't work only to have him patiently explain that they don't work automatically with the heated rear window but require to be switched on with that ultra discrete toggle switch....
My heated mirrors clear any mist/condensation etc within about 1 minute of me turning them on. Really good the past couple of days.
As far as I'm aware there is no timer - you just turn the switch on and then turn it off. There also isn't any backlight to the mirror or window switches (which is rather annoying at night/early morning).
