I broke my rear defroster

guys...i think this is a 1st...i have broken the wire on my defroster...both sides!

I think my hockey stick must have knocked both of them off....can i just solder it back on?

I am trying to see how to post a pic....

Re: I broke my rear defroster

you should be able to solder it back on... but its tricky. you might want to replace the terminal/spade itself (since i assume thats what broke off)

Re: I broke my rear defroster

I've soldered them back on before.  It's a pain but with care it's possible.
