    Evening all.
    Discovered my first fault on my CR-V. In this cold weather noted that the passenger side external mirror does not heat up. It adjusts ok but no heating. I checked the hand book and cannot find the relevant fuse for this.

    Can anyone advise please?
    Or is it a trip to the dealer for a new mirror/heating element ?

    You say passenger side mirror doesn't so I assume the driver side works. The side mirrors would be on the same fuse therefore if one is working, it won't be the fuse.
    If you could pop out the mirror and check the wire is connected.

    Put a multimeter across the terminals on the back of the mirror, if you have 12 volts then it’s the mirror at fault. If you don’t you probably have a broken wire.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if you find that the terminal has fallen of the back or the mirror as corroded.
