Near side mirror

The near side mirror on our golf match edition seems to fog up whereas the offside is perfectly clear - any suggestions folks

It's probably what it was last cleaned with. Give it a good clean and see if it still does it

Ok will do - we only bought the car last week and it was given a valet before handing it over - yes I'll give it a good clean with an appropriate cleaning agent - thank you

Is the mirror heater switched on? If it is and one is clear and the other not it could be faulty wiring (or not connected!!)...

Hobby - I'll try cleaning it first then get the dealer to check the wiring if necessary

Sometimes wiring connections get corrosion on them and heating stop working. Removing mirror glass will give access to wiring and corrosion can be easily cleaned
