Just bought a used jeep and one of the wire to the rear defroster has come off the glass. Is there an easy fix for this? I thought maybe a metal type epoxy or soldering it back?
You can try this.

It's my understanding that these kits are hit or miss, so it may not work. If that's the case, a trip to the dealer is in order.

First time I returned to dealer and they replaced the rear window. That lasted about six months then the cable came of again. I cleaned and soldered it myself, that lasted about a year. I didn't put enough heat on the connection when soldering in fear of cracking the glass.........so for the third time I tried the epoxy by permatex. A great product and it works if you take care to clean and buff the contact area (to a slightly different spot). Make sure the cable harness is not putting a strain on the connection when lifting the glass, I used a tie wrap. Let it cure for a couple of days before use.

Just start running 37's with a spare and you won't be able to see out the back glass anyway. I almost can't just running 35's. I don't even hook up the defrost/washer fluid/wiper anymore. :)

Sorry, I know that doesn't help, but just couldn't resist.
