  4. Heated Mirrors - have never worked

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The heated mirrors on my 2000 Passat have never worked since I got the car in 2015. When I pull back on the mirror switch nothing happens, no heat, nothing lights up. Is this as simple as checking a dedicated fuse?

    Last weekend I changed the whole dash as part of my 1 din to 2 din conversion, and prior to that the seats worked, but since it's still summer I am not sure until which point they worked or not, but after changing my dash I now noticed the heated seats are not working properly. Sometimes both...
  7. Heated mirrors and epoxy

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all, So my driver side mirror glass was 90% of the way to falling off, and so I removed it and then used some harbor freight epoxy to glue it back on. Now the question I have is will the heated mirrors still work as intended and will the heat loosen the epoxy to the point that it falls off...
  8. Heated mirrors have never worked

    B5 Garage
    On my 2000 GLS the heated mirrors have never worked in the four years I've owned it. Is it as simple as replacing a fuse? Should a light come on when the heater is activated by centering the mirror adjuster knob and pushing it aft? Beyond feeling the mirror, how do you know it's on?

  13. B6 drivers heated seat

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I was wanting to know best process to follow to determine what root cause is for driver side heated seat not working. Passenger side heats good. Fuses have been verified. Switch lights up when roll to setting. I am thinking it is an element wire under cover.
  14. Faulty heated seats :-(

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have noticed that the drivers seat heater is only heating the upright back part and not where your butt sits. My passenger said there seat didn't get warm at all. I haven't checked the passenger seat yet. They both worked fine a month or two ago. Does someone have to be siting in the seat...

  20. Heated Steering Wheel - Where's the Button?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Ebay seems to have a few options for heated steering wheels - mostly from a Touareg. The wheels look the same as what the B7 has, which is actually the problem - there's no extra button to activate the heat function. There's a Youtube video showing how to turn on the heat, but the video is in a...
