Rear window defroster tab popped off window. Repeated attempts to fix were unsuccessful. I've tried epoxy, silver solder, copper conductive tape, and a defroster repair kit from Pep Boys. Probably going to need to get a new window, at this point.

Rear defroster fell off and I want to know how to repair it. Also do I need to take the metal clip off first.

The spade connector on the window, still connected to the wire, is dangling, disconnected. The clip broke away from the window.

Permatex has a product named rear defroster repair kit, I bought mine at a Murrays parts store $14. Clean the window area and broken tab with the cleaner / activator wait 5 minutes apply the conductive epoxy hold in place for 1 minute, let everything dry for 24 hours reconnect the wire to the tab (hold the tab with you finger) and whalaa ,,, it works great...
