Default Wing mirror replacement advice

Hi

I need to replace a wing mirror on my v70 54 reg v70 (I think it's the p2 variant - it has chrome detailing on the bumpers )

Ebay has a few mirrors but they come with different wiring I think - mine is a heated, power adjusting power folding

Can anyone advise me on the kind of wiring I need on the replacement. I know I can take the door off and look but I still don't know if that will help

I have taken the triangular cover off where the mirror is bolted on and there are 2 cables going in to the mirror (if that helps)

thanks
Rob

Don't know the correct answer but I've noticed there are two shapes of the mirror glass on the P2. Early S60 had a mirror shape which changed after about 2003 and are not interchangeable. Is by chance only a burned heating element?

Well I want the whole shebang - I've actually found a perfect match (I think) here http://ebay.eu/2wUsSOU - but you might not be able to view since I bought it. The serial / part # matched mine exactly + colour so I'm 99% confident it will be ok

thanks

give it a try for the heating element upon install, these go bad often time, especially on the right side mirror for some reason (for the US models). I'd remove and keep the mirror from the old unit just in case (pull on the side then pop it while pulling to remove the glass)

Well the old mirror is cracked from when someone swiped into the car so it's not really a keeper.
