1. RH (Drivers) mirror does not heat up? LH does so assume it cant be a fuse problem?

2. Boot light doesn't work. Bulb ok & assume again not the fuse as it would prob run other things too?

3. Rear demister seems to take an age to do its job, although it does work?

Any ideas please?

also, when the trunk light comes on it illuminates the interior through the lights by the inside mirror if the switch is set to have the interior lights come on when the doors are opened. Just an FYI

1: Did the mirror heat up before , it may have been replaced with a non heated one at some point ?
2: Check the boot switch is ok ?
3: it may be slower than other cars you're used to or maybe only partialy workiing ?

Not had car long & noticed on 1st frost about mirror!
Where's the boot switch located? Cant see it in lock housing?
And i guess the rear demist is a tough **** one :)

It's quite possible the previous owner had the glass replaced and didn't get the heated version then , I suppose the only way to find out , is to remove the glass and see if it is connected up !
It's probably in with the boot latch /lock , perhaps someone with a r170 will chime in ?
The rear is difficult , again perhaps someone with more knowledge on the r170 will have some ideas ?
