Heated Rear Window Problem

Recommended Posts

Most of the heater tracks in my HRW do not work.  It's very hard to spot the breaks, and my attempts at repair with conductive paint have been unsuccessful - maybe I was not treating the actual breaks.  Is there anything I can do, short of having the window replaced?

When you repaired the traces did you sand back the traces to reveal bare metal before painting? I only ask as i’ve seen people slap paint on and expect it to work. They were usually disappointed.

That'll be it 😳

In my defence, the last time I did it was on an Datsun Cherry, and that didn't need sanding, the metal was exposed.

Thanks !

For the avoidance of doubt go easy on it, literally a metal polishing block or very fine wet and dry lightly over each side of the break, you just need to expose some bare metal so you have a decent surface to conduct from and to, not get the angle grinder out and cut a trench 😄
