    Might be a wire come off in the mirror itself or a fuse gone???

    Just because you have the internal mirror doesn't necessarily mean the drivers door mirror is a dimming one. Has it ever worked?

    the actual mirror/glass is different than the one i had in my Ls it has a wider border around the glass, as its a design model it should work with the rear view mirror, i only got the car back in augst 08

    Thanks ill check the fuses but with the heated section working ok will the dimmer be on a different fuse. Is it easy to take the mirror off to check to see if a connection has come off the back of the glass

    Did it come with the dimming mirror as standard or have you retro-fitted the dimming glass? i.e. has it ever worked?

    The dimming glass is easy to identify as it has a black border around the edge.
