    Hello all,
    I am having trouble with my drivers side wing mirror. recently, I tried to adjust the glass, and it wouldn't budge. Neither would the passenger side. I checked the fuse and it had blown. Replaced the fuse and instantly blew again as soon as I tried to adjust. Also, the drivers side heated element isn't working. I've checked the continuity of the glass and the circuit is fine, which leads me to think there is a break in the door loom. Has anyone removed this? Any help or thoughts would be most welcome.
    Thanks in advance!

    you assumption is most likely correct

    you very likely have broken wires in the door loom where it flexes as the door is opened/closed

    i've repaired loads of cars with this fault, you need to remove the rubber grommet from the car and pull the rubber back to expose the broken wires
    Then its just a case of making the best of a bad job, exted the wires a little rather than trying to re solder the broken bits back together

    Also check the multiplug for water ingress/corrosion/broken pins
