First, get a Bentley (not the car, the manual)

Second, anyway, look at your fuse box.  There should be some fuses
piggybacked into relay sockets above the regular row of fuses.  This is
where the "extra" stuff is fused on our EEAs (early eighties Audis). 
The power wire to the mirrors was yellow last time I looked, but it
might change color on the way to the fuse box (via a connector).

OK, Bentley in hand.

I'll try again.  The main juice wire is an 18 GA red/blue wire.  There
is an 8 A fuse, NOT in the fuse box (it should be where i described),
the wire to it comes from connection "H" on the fuse box.  "H" is the
bank of battery (always 12v) terminals on the back of the fuse box.  All
the "H" wires are solid red.
