I put the hard top on my 82 380SL the other day and I have a question.<br>
There is a wire coming out of the top and I know where it plugs in. My question is I do not see the thin electrical wires in the back window that is there to make heat to unfog the back window.. Does this thing defrost via a diferent mechanism? <br>
The glass in the back window is original.<br>
<br>
<br>
Anyone have any thoughts on this?<br>
<br>
<br>
Thanks in advance.<br>

The defroster does work. I have used it on my SL several times. I see no vertical line on mine, but the window does defrost.

Yes, the window heating element is very fine so it is not easy to see when the window is not fogged. When it is operating on a fogged window, you'll see it clearing in vertical bands.
