    Rear Window Defroster

    So, I was driving to school one morning...And while waiting for my rear window do clear up...I noticed that one of my defroster line thingies was dead...

    At least it isn't anything that I can't live without...The other lines do a good job of clearing the window.

    How can I get that working again? Can I replace it?

    You can fix it yourself with a defrost repair kit. Find where the line is broken using an ohmmeter first, then paint the conductive material over the break.

    (usually the kit contains a slitted piece of cardboard, paper, plastic, etc, and a really tiny brush to apply the conductive liquid)

    Most auto parts store carry those kits.
