repair defrost tab?
 
I recently picked up a used 03 top/frame to update my 01 top, which is starting to get long in the tooth. After getting home with it I noted the rear window defroster has the electical connector tab broken free of the glass on one side. Can this be fixed? If so, how? Thanks all.

Wasn't just me then. Mine broke last year, I got some of this stuff and it works fine now:

I've used a similar product on my dd and it works well. Has held up for 6 years as of now. ;)

It's an epoxy with a very high silver content so it conducts electricity well. There are cheaper products but there are quite a few amps flowing through it so avoid them. Best to do it on a warm day and even then you still have to use a heat gun or hairdrier to cure the epoxy for an hour.

The tube is sufficient to repair a 100 tabs!

Thumbs up! Tried this stuff, seems to be the fashizzle, works exactly as promised, with taping looks very professional, detectable only by change in color as compared to original. Thanks to Nimbus for the heads up!
May try this for cold soldering to replace rechargeable batteries in other applications.
