with an electrical tester...find the connector to the little motor in there and test if the connection has continuity or open meaning a burned connection...on the other side can see if 12 volts are present too~....we can snoop out your problem this way~

Vw's are bad for oxydized contacts. Follow the wires through from mirror to fuse panel and clean with wd40, thenlubricate with dielectric grease. It may also be the contacts wkthin the motor. If you can get to it, clean the motor the same way (a though I doubt you can take it apart). Enrik
