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!!!

    I have the same problem. My clip came off the rear deck lid passenger side, and the glass shop I took it to said the clip was too close to the edge and they couldn't repair it. They told me I need a new window. What kind of solder would I get to repair this?
    I have had 4 computers go out, my air pump on the rear stabelizer has went bad 4 times, and my air shock on the rear has went out. I had it replaced at $850.00 and they installed it wrong and had to re-due it again. This vehicle has been a problem child from the beginning.

    I had the same problem with the tab on the rear window breaking off. I fixed it 2 years ago and have not had a problem since. I soldered it on and then put a clear epoxy over the solder joint. This has solved my problem and hopefully others that have had the same issue, this will help you too.

    this just happened to me. I thought maybe super glue would work.
