Stilo Wing Mirror heating

Hi there! My heated mirrors from the Stilo weren't working (the heating filament was too worn) and i replaced them both with Alkar ones (around 15 each). They seem to work but my passenger side get warmer and quicker than the driver's side. Is it supposed? They are brand new and no defect what-so-ever (apparently). Passengers side gets pretty hot to touch and the drivers side gets kinda hot but not as hot as the passengers. Since i bought them yesterday i can still return the mirrors. Anyone as any idea? Could it be a cabling issue? The mirror motors both work fine...is it normal to get one side hotter than the other?

On a separate topic, is the interior mirror glass (rearview mirror) changeable? I mean just the glass part not the whole piece, like the wing mirror (i just swapped the glass not the whole casing). Thanks in advance!

Hi.
Rearview .. possible but tricky..


Sides.. swap them over.. does it behave the same?

Or has the HOT ONE swapped sides?

I cleaned the wiring with cleaning fluid and then used some white grease to help keep everything working well for longer. Seemed to do the trick.

You just cleaned the terminals connected to the mirror or both ends?

Re: Stilo Wing Mirror heating

There was two wires on mine, in the back of the mirror exterior housing. And that is all I cleaned and greased up. Does that make sense?
