Hi all,

Rear defroster on 1985 190E not working. When I flip the switch it's light turns on but the rear windscreen doesn't defrost. Benz mechanic says that the connection to the defroster strips on the window is missing and they can't do anything. Is this right? Would an auto electrician be able to do something?
Cheers

I cant remember off hand where the connection is, but not being able to do something is a wire is missing, thats a stupid thing to say. Now if the actual strips in the window have gone bad thats a whole different story.

The ground and feed connections are both black wires (the ground for the defogger is behind the right rear C-pillar W13).
