    Are they manually operated?

    Every vehicle I have ever had with heated mirrors they switch on automatically when the temperature drops to a certain point.

    There should be a row of switches below the heater controls - the far left is the heated mirrors (looks like heated rear screen switch in a car).

    The switch is on a timer just like a car heated rear screen. It also operates the heated rear screen in a Ducato van.
