Looking at getting the heated mirrors
#1302192 - 08/17/06 07:31 AM

Who has done the conversion on these. I read in the search that it has been done. I would like to get some input of the aftermath and are they worth it!!

^^^ What he said. I have a pair sitting on my workbench waiting for paint. They'll be next to useless here in Texas, but I had 'em on my parts car so why not?

How do they work? Do they just turn on (heat up) when the defroster button is active?

That was a 95-97 only option, correct? Contour & Mystique?

There is just a printed circuit stuck to the back of the glass, which gets current and heats up.

i saw several pre98s at the junkyard. can i tell if they have heated mirrors? using the defrost switch will be useless at the junkyard. r the mirrors marked or etched to show they are heated versions?

Woah where did the main site go? Part of the revamping I guess?
There was a set of pictures showing some of the decontenting and had a picture of the heated mirrors. I think they said something like 'heated' but can't be sure.

You can tell by looking at the mirror and see if there are wires running to the glass peice itself. Thats what I did for my old contour when I put them in. Local yard had two of them in the right color... but they got smashed and left with the other car.
