How do you operate the heated side view mirrors?
If your car is equipped with heated side view mirrors (not all models are), you can use this feature to get rid of fog, snow and ice that might have collected on the mirrors. Using them is actually very simple. Just press the rear defrost button on the center stack. This operates both the rear defrost and the mirror heaters. The heated mirrors will turn off at the same time the rear defrost does.
Don’t use an ice scraper on your heated mirrors – the pressure could damage the motor or adjusters.
