had the dealer fix it at time of purchase. A glass guy (subcontracted by the dealership) soldered the tab. We live in warm climate, so haven't had to use it yet.
Wire came off 1 month after we bought it. Fixed twice at the dealer with their special glue and came off both times. Still under certified used warranty the dealer replaced the entire window. Total 3.5 days at the dealer to fix the issue start to finish.
