Rear window defogger wire 2012 Yukon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

One of the two Defogger curly wires that connect to the tail door window has become detached. Is there a simple fix or should I return to dealer for this minor repair?

It sounds like a tab came off the defroster which is a common reason for defroster failure. Since I work for a company that makes defroster repair kits, defroster repair accessories and aftermarket defrosters I talk to a lot of customers with this issue. What I would do is bond the tab back to the defroster using a Frost Fighter Tab Bonding kit. This kit uses a two part silver adhesive to bond the tab back to the defroster. The Frost Fighter Tab Kit can be seen at this link.
