Hey,Your first picture showed that panel, so I thought that was the question.
What is the problem with the existing wires.
Yeah, thanks for your input.I purchased the frostfighter kit. Bonded the buttons with their silver solder and they also sold a wire kit that I just spliced in and for now seems to be working fine. The product I used first was made by permatex and a waste of money. The defroster tabs are a well known issue. They have done a poor job addressing that. I figured those panels were bonded. Only other way is maybe fish the harness through the opening.If you are talking about the inner white part of the hardtop, the answer is you can't. It is bonded to the fiberglass outer shell at the factory.
The tabs that connect to the rear window are major source of annoyance to me. Like @xackley said, the info dealers have is that to repair this the back window needs to be replaced. I've done the DIY version linked above (got kits from local shop) a couple times with pretty poor success rate. One worked for a few weeks, the other didn't really work at all.
Might be easier if you have a heated garage, which I don't. So as soon as it gets cold enough for me to know if it was a success, I can't redo it. I've mostly given up at this point.
I've ran wires through it, it's not too bad. If you get the top side plugs out (careful you don't break the connecting thingy) it is much easier to run stuff. Been a number of years, but I got things pushed through, and I don't remember it being a big pain.
Frostfighter eh? Permatex is a waste of money for that stuff, I'll have to try the other stuff next time. So you replaced the tabs and all? Or just used the stuff on the existing things?
Tell me a little about your plow set-up in your photo? Brand, cost, do you recommend? Thanks!Sitting in the driver seat there are 2 screws with big black handles up behind your head, remove.
Then twist all the black L shaped holders and push up a little to verify you found them all.
