Broken Defrost Wire

The wire that was soldered to the copper strip on the rear windshield of my 2010 wrangler has fallen off. This is an electrical supply wire for the rear defrost. It appears that the connection just came apart. has this happened to anyone else? how have you fixed it? re soldering it may be tricky as it is upside down, and glass. that might be the only solution though...... any thoughts? thanks

3M electrically conductive epoxy might work.
