    I have a 54 plate E46 318ci, around Sept time my rear screen stopped heating up. Have taken the car to BMW and to an independent who have both put the car on the computer.

    Both times have come back with the same result. Nothing wrong with the screen all working OK, even though I sat there and showed BMW it didnt work.

    BMW have recommended I just get the whole screen replaced, didnt quote me a price.

    Has anyone had a similair problem, any ideas ??? In need of some advice please.

    Thanks

    Are you familiar with a continuity test?

    May be worth performing this test on the rear screen element as IIRC they are quite fragile?

    I wasn't aware that such issues would be highlighted on a diagnostic scan?

    Cars are just getting FAR too complex, I'll be sticking with my E36's
