Rear defroster repair

10

Asked by Mar 17, 2011 at 10:40 AM about the 2007 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The connector for the rear defroster was knocked loose when I took my
Trailblazer in for detailing. My dealership said they couldn't fix it and told me to
call some glass repair shops. I did and they want to replace the entire back
window, at a cost of $800+ to repair it. I've looked online at some connector
repair kits. Has anyone tried any of these and if so have they worked for you? I
can't believe that I would have to replace an $800 piece of glass just to repair the
connector. Thanks for any input!

The glass is tampered to handle the heat, so that it doesn't crack during the cold cold winter weather. 800 is a little high though, you might be able to salvage one from a junk yard for maybe 200... then take it to the dealer or a collision repair shop, and have them install it for you. Might save you a little but a little is better than nothing at all.
