Question about Nissan Almera
There may be a fuse in the fuse panel under dash, but defoggers are often found with a circuit breaker rather than a fuse. There may also be a relay in the circuit to the rear window. You could pull off the connector at the window, and with key on and defogger switch on, check for power at the connector. If you have power, one of the grid wires on the window may be broken. Kits are available to fix that.
If no power at the window, IDK, may have to find a wiring diagram, or have an electrician or mechanic start looking into it. Good luck.

I have the same problem in my 2003 Altima. I had a friend who works on cars check it out. I watched him and when he removed the panel under the steering wheel next to the driver's door you could hear a clicking noise. He said is sounds like my defogger relay/switch is bad. I located the part and it is not that expensive. I am going to purchase the part and have it put on. I will keep you posted to let you know if it solves my problem. If it does I will give you the name of the part so you can hopefully solve your issue.

The rear defogger is fuse #14 (40 Amp fuse) in the underhood fuse box,no other fuses, I have the owners manual. If the fuse checks good test the heater grid of the rear defogger, it is most likely is an open circuit, it can be repaired by the dealer or u..

There are 3 fuses that control the rear defogger, and 1 relay
The fuses are: 10 amp HEATER, 10 amp MIRROR-HEATER; under the dash
The 30 amp DEF fuse is in the fuse box under the hood
The relay is the DEFOGGER relay, which is on the back side of the fuse panel under the dash
Also, check for a loose wire on the defroster grid (on the back glass), this is the most common problem.
