hi lads, same Epica, recently i found the defrosting element on the real windshield does not produce heat, i pressed the activation button, and i can hear normal clicks inside the dash, but the indicator light does not comp up.
i saw no burn marks on the rear windshield.
i went to a local mechanic for checking the fuses, all of them were good. he told me that it would be very possible for needing to swap for a new piece of rear windshield, and i worried about water leaking into the vehicle after that.
then later i found the defrosting elements on both rear view mirrors are not heating as well. again no burn marks can be seen on the mirror without disassembling them.
i went to the dealership for the problem, they told me that in the very beginning the price for checking what's wrong will be about US$ 100, and the vehicle will have to stay there overnight.
despite the price, i dislike leaving my vehicle out of my reach, and it is my only daily-driving vehicle.
now i would like to ask, is there anything i can check for before ultimately i leave the vehicle to the dealership, thanks
