Rear Window Defogger Wire Repair
NOTE: To make an effective repair, the broken section must be no longer than 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 transparent tape (C).|
|3.||Mix the silver conductive paint thoroughly. Using a small brush, apply a heavy coat of the paint (commercially available defogger grid repair material) extending about 1/8'' on both sides of the break. Allow 30 minutes to dry. Mix the paint before use.|
|4.||Check for continuity in the repaired wire.|
|5.||Apply a second coat of paint in the same way. Let it dry 3 hours before removing the tape.|
