Rear Window Defogger Wire Repair
NOTE: To make an effective repair, the broken section must be no longer than 2.5 mm (1 inch).
|1.||Lightly rub the area around the broken section (A) with fine steel wool, then clean it with alcohol.|
|2.||Carefully mask above and below the broken portion of the defogger wire (B) with cellophane tape (C).|
|3.||Using a small brush, apply a heavy coat of silver conductive paint (commercially available) (A) extending about 1/8'' on both sides of the break. Allow 25 minutes to dry.|
|4.||Perform the function test to confirm that the wire is repaired.|
|5.||Apply a second coat of paint in the same way. Let it dry 3 hours before removing the tape.|
