Windshield defrosters have been around for almost as long insides of automobiles have been heated. Rear window defrosters have been around for decades. Eventually, someone thought it would be nice to attach heated mirrors to cars.

Eventually, someone thought it would be nice to attach heated mirrors to cars.

Most heated mirrors attach to the electric elements that control a car’s rear defroster. When the rear defroster is turned on, the heating elements in the mirrors should be active. Keeping ice and fog off side view mirrors allows a driver to more easily see vehicles and other dangers behind him when weather conditions are inclement, simply by applying a small amount of heat to the glass surface of the side mirrors. Electrical elements in the mirrors heat the surface of the glass. The heat evaporates moisture on the surface and melts any ice that has built up. Unfortunately heated mirrors occasionally will heat unevenly or worse yet… Not at all.

Replacing the entire mirror head assembly will definitely fix this problem, however that can be quite costly. Why replace the entire mirror, if the mirror is not the problem? It is most likely that the heating element behind the glass surface has gone bad, so why not simply replace that?
