maybe becase we get more snow? lol.

i would find a heating element to put behind the mirror or direct a small tube from the heater thru the door and out behind the mirror but im not sure how much flow you would get through the amount of tube you would have to use. best bet would be to find a small heating element. maybe cannibalize a heated ice scraper and wire it into the rear defroster circuit

i thought about jimmy riggin something together, but i wasnt sure of how hot is to hot, and i dont really nknow enough about wiring to wire in relays and stuff for things auto shut off, thats why i was hoping some else had done it. other wise i was going to take apart a set of mirrors off of an intrepid or something

why not just use the rear defroster circuit, and wire it in with that? a timed circuit, so you don't have to worry about it. and one switch for all of it...if you need to use the rear defroster, you'll probably be needing the side mirrors to be cleared up, so i think it would be a good idea to run it all off of one switch, and leave it looking stock.

if u move the lense to the inner side opening up a gap on the side fartest from the car(the edge of the mirror housing) then u can use a little flat head screwdriver there are clips molded to the mirror and they just click in. just need to seperate them a tad to get it off.
