Hi everyone. I noticed on my MGF that there are wires going to the exterior mirrors. They are not motorised so I think it's for heaters/de icers but there is not a switch that I can see to operate them, so how do they work?? Regards.

Remember that the resistance of the elements is temperature dependent - they draw hardly any current above freezing but lots below zero. So no switch required.
Sorry - wrong car!:oops:

When mine was in daily use I found it both bemusing and frustrating that within seconds of firing up I could see behind me, but on a very cold day it took 15+ minutes of scraping and demisting before I could see where I was going...
