Heated passenger mirror?
#1
Quick question, my passenger mirror glass is delaminated from the backing, so I've seen a full passenger side wing mirror on eBay that's heated, where  only my driver's one currently heats. Anyone know if the heating plug circuit goes to the passenger side? I'd have thought so, as it means LHD and RHD only need one harness. It seems the van was built with only the driver's mirror heated. Not much use in winter, I want to see out of both sides!

You would think that logically the wiring would be there, but this is Citroen so who knows?

Assuming you have electrical adjustable mirrors can you not access the plug behind the internal panel and carry out some voltage checks when the rear window heaters are on (which is the circuit that controls the mirror heaters)?

Yeah with small enough probes I can. Just wondered if it was known before I buy the mirror if the circuit goes to both sides. Actually the plugs should be there and that likely means it is wired for both sides. Always found it daft they only supply a heated mirror on the drivers side.

Quick update, even though Servicebox said my van was built with a non heated mirror on the passenger side, it was in fact a heated one and the wiring is present, and works. The previous owner who had bought the van brand new, must have suffered a smashed mirror and had stuck a cheapo replacement glass on to the original backplate of the broken one - this glass was now coming away which is what prompted me to replace it with a proper (heated) citroen one. When I pried the mirror glass frame out with a plastic body tool, there was the old heated screen surface with many many punctures in it from the previously broken mirror glass.

Once removed and the new mirror connected up and clipped into place, bingo - 2 heated mirrors once more.

The mirrors are a bit creaky if you move the glass by hand, so I plan to spray some silicon lube in there to make them smoother. You don't notice when using the electric adjustment but as I was clipping the new mirror in I could feel and hear it was a bit dry and creaky though it moves reasonably well.
