Rear window demist

Post by Marekdawg » Mon Nov 13, 2017 2:30 pm

I have come across the problem I have seen a few times.. Drivers side attachment for the rear window demist has come lose.
What are the solutions to this, can it be simply re-attached with a conductive glue or similar or is it a more serious issue?
Thanks,
Silver E89 Sdrive30I Msport. Wrapped black roof and other bits. :D :driving:

I have had same problem ever since i bought the car. there seems not enough of the track left to re-solder on.
I thought perhaps some kind of expoxy resin might be used to stick a wire on.

Just get autoglass to replace your rear window, its not that expensive and they do a great job. Better than arseing around with blobs of glue or whatever.

I had this at year 1. Got it replaced under warranty. Been fine for the last 7 years...
