Missing Rear Windshield Defroster Tabs

Recommended Posts

I did extensive searching on the forum and couldn't find any information on this topic...

I bought a used 2003 Boxster with 28K miles 1 1/2 years ago. I noticed that the rear defroster switch lights up but nothing happens. Inspecting the situation I saw two disconnected leads that lie in the well for the top. At first I looked for where they would connect to the car's wiring harness. And then it struck me that these wires were disconnected from the defroster grid and window itself.

One lead has only a flat tab that must be half of the original tab that adhered to the window and the other lead has only the terminated female connector. So, I'm asking you Porsche experts to help me out where my Bentley manual could not:

1. Any idea where I can get hold of a proper right angle tab to attach to the defroster grid? (or possibly provide a DIY kluge for a tab...)

2. Any sure fire way to adhere these new tabs to the windshield? I've had no success using the Advance Auto kit and/or solder on my 2000 Suburban's tailgate lift glass.

Thanks in advance for any and all help/advice provided!
