2007 Dodge Grand Varavan - How to tell if side view mirroris heat
I broke my passange side view mirror - if it's heater or not; how to tell. If I buy a heated mirror will I still be able to adjust its setting from my dash board switch. Can I go wrong by buying a heated mirror even if the van doesn't have heated mirrors?

I don't think that model had an electric mirror so you should be looking for a black knob on the door panel that works like a joy stick. That is probably the only adjustment for that mirror other than moving it manually with your finger right on the mirror itself.
Side view mirrors are relatively simple to replace. Sometimes it requires the removal of the complete door trim to gain access to the mounting nuts and any wiring it may have. Other times there is a triangle piece in the corner of the door window opening that can be removed by itself and allows access to the hardware and wiring connectors. Check local junkyards for a used mirror, you may even find one in the right color. Good luck.
I have never had the privelage to work on a BMW but I am assuming they are assembled in a similar manner to most other modern cars so if you look directly behind the mirror on the inside there should be a plastic cover which hides the mounting bolts for the mirror.
The cover should just unclip without too much pressure.
There will be some wires coming from the back of the mirror which will have to be removed before removing the mirror. You should see a plastic block which the wires go into, seperate the blocks, remove the bolts and remove the mirror.
I hope this has helped or is reasonably close to what I am telling you
The wiring harness goes to the cowl under the dash. You need to attack it from the top of the dash by removing the side pillar trim and dash panels.
The harness needs to be attacked from the top of the dashboard to find this connector. Remove the pillar trim and then the dash panels to find the connector for the mirror.
