rear window defroster

Asked by Dec 20, 2014 at 05:15 PM about the 2002 GMC Envoy 4 Dr SLE SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I put on my rear window defroster only the top two lines seems to defrost.  Is this
repairable or do I need a new rear window?  Please help

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 --- ; DIY: Repairing Your Rear Window Defroster --- ; 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
