The wire come on part right where its welded to the glass. I cant put it back theres no click connector. Rear glass its foggy all winter long.
The rear hatch defroster stopped working because the coiled wire and clip separated from the glass and dangles loose. Hasn't worked in 10 years. Truck is a 2002 which we purchased brand new in January of 2002. 250k miles and still running.
