The left hand heated mirrior on my 05 2.5 Treg does not work, cannot find any reference to fuses, any help appreciated, right hand mirror is fine.

Neither of my heated mirrors were working recently. I also struggled to find which fuse fed them but I never dug too deep as I had the car going in for some warrenty work on the brakes and so I got them to check the mirrors out too. Both elements were open circuit and so they replaced both mirror lenses. The elements are famous for failing I think. You will probably find more info on here about them, including links to you tube clips on how to replace them yourself if you need to.

Hope his helps.

I didn't realise you had to switch them off so mine had been on a for a year! But they still work.

Don't you find keeping the switch in the L position better for the tilting feature when reversing? (Helpful question just in case you didn't know it was there)

I've tried that but it doesn't seem to work!

It's also useful so with one more more click to the left [i.e. to the nearside] the mirrors fold if you have to squeeze in tight in a lane or meet something with even bigger mirrors[!] at the same height on a narrow road.
