This website will show you what the heater actually looks like. This is what we use to replace these mirrors since the heater plate is actually glued to the back of the mirror. Seeing it should help you understand better.
First pics show the person pulling the backing off the heater plate to expose the adhesive and it is being attached to the back of a mirror.
Sounds like it is just an issue of the bulb in the switch. Or... Does something else need to be "on" in order for it to work? My sube doesn't have this feature so I am not familiar. Some cars like some of the new bmw's need the rear defroster activated in order for the side mirror heaters to work. Just a thought but not likely for a sube.
Hope this helps!!

If you would take the switch apart, you would know for sure. Odds are that you can replace the bulb.
My heated mirrors work on my 97 Outback. I have what looks to be a small light on the switch but it does not light up. Is it suppose to light up? If so is it difficult to replace or do I need a new switch?
