As above peeps, the drivers side mirror folds up at roughly half the speed of the passenger mirror. I suspect sod unit.

Passenger side mirror doesn't heat up at all. I've had the mirror off, both the connections are in place.

Thoughts, ideas welcome.

hi mate I get these all the time at work, for the heating mirror, the elements in the mirror just tend to fade out so its usually solved with a new mirror glass. as for the folding mirror, ive had a few where it just needs a bit of wd40 on the hinge it swings on, if not it will be the motor in the mirror dying out, which will be a new mirror unit itself. hope this helps

2 dark 2 do anything about it today. I will swap the Sod's over tomorrow.

At least that will answer the folding problem.

I will swap the mirrors over as well to test if there is power on the passenger side for the mirror.

One way or another I should get some answers. :)

Update: so I took both mirrors to bits today. Swapped the Sod's over and now the passenger mirror is the slow one, so it is the sod unit that is at fault.

I then connected the passenger mirror to the drivers side and it didn't heat up (the drivers mirror did heat up on the passenger side) so it looks like I need a new passenger mirror.

I will give cox a phone tomorrow, thanks for all the suggestions guys! ;)

mine did this and it was the SOD unit and in the end struggled to go all the way, I would obviously give the mirror joint a little lube but suspect you need the SOD sorting

Send the faulty one to Syx for repair. He did a great job on mine;
