    Morning, all,
    I just noticed my defroster cable has broken off of the rear window. Any ideas on an easy fix?

    Mine came disconnected yesterday! Good timing. Thanks for recommendation. Anyone used this Frostfighter product?

    When I was working at the Cadillac dealer, the procedure for fixing those was easy. Emory cloth to clean both surfaces, lots of flux, and silver solder to reattach. That Frost Fighter kit looks a lot easier than trying to flow solder on a window, to be honest.
