The rear window defogger may stop working due to a wire terminal broken off of the rear glass. Our technicians tell us that terminal can be reattached using a special glue or silver solder.

    My rear driver side defogger wire came off the rear window, I had it soldered back on and about a year later it fell off. I again had it soldered and has yet fallen off again. I've been told by a dealership that I may have to replace the rear window, I find that hard to believe. I heard there is some kind of glue that will fix this. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!

    Almost identical issue to other respondent. Driver's side defogger wire broke off the window. Dealer soldered back on and charged by $100+. A few months later, it fell off again. Took it back and they re-soldered, this time with no charge. Now, less than a year later, it popped off again.

    Dealer is now saying I need a new window, to the tune of $350+. That is beyond belief...

    When I purchased my used truck this was broken on it but the dealership paid for it to get fixed. Have not had a issue since.
