    Default repairing rear heated window?

    Hi all,

    I have an annoying single bar that does not work on the rear heated window right in the middle

    I have had a very close look and can see a miniscule area of the element that looks damaged.

    Is there anything on the market that you can recomend that might be able to to repair this

    Jon

    Just been searching on google and the pen seems a good bet.

    I have just bought a cheap multimeter to pin point the break just in case its not where I thought it was.

    Will let you know how successful I am with the repair

    You should of taken a picture of where you think was broken. Zoomed in a bit to find the break.

    use some conductive paint from RS components, the type used for small/minor repairs to circuit boards.

    Ive used this stuff before and its VERY good, just make sure you use masking tape either side of the line, and shake the bottle for at least a week to mix it up, paint it on, then leave for an hour and go over it again to make sure its cured fully

    also you will need to clean the area with white spirit first to get a good connection
