Adjust the mirror so that you can just see the side of your vehicle in the mirror.

On some models, when you push the rear window defogger switch, the heater panels in the outside rear view mirrors will quickly clear the mirror surface. (See "Rear window and outside rear view mirror de-foggers" on page 129 in Section 1-5.)
