Then you aren't looking properly lol. It is right beside the temperature control toggle switch for the passenger side. It turns on both the heated mirrors and the rear defroster (it has the symbol for both on it).

I'm coming from a 2003 TL-S where there are separate buttons for back window and side mirrors. Didn't look that well I guess. Thanks to all.

Was it like my 1G where the heated mirror button was by the mirror adjustment button?

Same placement on my old 2G TL. That button also physically depressed, meaning I would sometimes forget it was on and end up driving for days heating up the side mirrors for no reason.

I never had a need to use the one for my side mirrors. I miss my TL-S, but the RL is making it waaaaay less painful.

I totally get that. Every time I get back in the 1G or go on a drive in the Camry, I realize how hard the transition is. It takes me a couple of days to "forget" the experience.
