It's repairable, you should never replace a window ($$$) just to repair a dead defroster. Try these guides: How To Repair a Rear Window Defrost Grid Panel --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9NQ46ckgYw ; DIY: Repairing Your Rear Window Defroster --- http://autorepair.about.com/cs/doityourself/a/aa112302a.htm ; hope these help.

Most auto parts stores sell rear defogger repair kits. The trick is usually finding the break in the grid that zaps out most or all of the defogger. HTH. -Jim
