Hi
How do I tell if I have heated door mirrors on my 2002 Focus Ghia 2.0l?
The Haynes manual says it does and the Parkers guide says it does (for Ghias too).
I've put the heated rear window on on cold mornings because that's supposedly on the same circuit, but the mirrors don't clear.
I've checked the heated mirrors' fuse (F50) and that's fine
I know one of my wing mirrors is broken, and if I were to fold it in, it'd snap off, so maybe that's broken a connection?
TIA

you can tell by looking for the wire and plug coming from the mirror, or take out the glass, it will wired and have a element on the back..

yes, if you have that option, they only come on with the heated rear window.

When engine running switch on rear heated screen and feel your mirrors you will feel them get warm/hot-ish...

Just tried them. They do get warm to the touch. Just haven't noticed them clearing fine water mist away first thing in the morning, so didn't think they worked :unsure:
