I found that by turning it to 'Face' mode and than closing the two inner vents and pointing the outer vents towards the windows worked quite well for me.

I only wish I could find these Redi Heat elements in Ontario somewhere, they are seemingly difficult to find here. :canada:

I had frost on my mirrors yesterday and the heaters worked great. They even evaporated the water drops. I also did this mod to another taco but used the smaller elements. Its worth getting larger elements because the smaller elements did not melt the entire mirror, only where the element was applied.

... .I used a defrost switch from a late 90's 4runner. ...

How much dremelling did you have to do to fit the 4Runner switch? Did you have to make the hole bigger or just cut pieces behind the panel? In your pic it looks like the switch fits securely and looks stock ... great job!

I have the Muth heated signal mirrors and want to have a stock looking switch. Here's a couple I found on ebay:

Does anyone know if the power mirror glass is attached the same on the 2004 and earlier Tacomas?

1st GenTacoma power mirrors

Do the 2004 and earlier Tacoma power mirrors come apart the same way?

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but does anyone have the pictures from the original poster? I plan on doing this this weekend, the pictures would be great.

I bought a aftermarket heated mirror from a Sienna, looks to be the same.

Thanks
Shawn
