'96 850 wagon - fixing heated power mirror?

The passanger side power mirror does not heat/defrost. Otherwise it
works fine and I can change its position.

The driver side works just fine.

Any on what is wrong? If it were a fuse or wiring issue it wouldn't
work work at all, right? I'm thinking it is the heating/resistance
element.

Any advice on fixing this would be appreciated. Since it otherwise
works I'm not inclined to replace the whole mirror.

The glass unplugs from the housing,you can measure continuity of the
heater section .
If it is open the glass part can be purchased with out buying the
entire mirror assbly

Remove the door panel to gain access to the mirror wiring and then check
the resistance across the mirror heater element. If that's open you'll
have to see if you can get the mirror apart for a better look, otherwise
you may need to swap the whole mirror.
