I just accessed mine. It is under the rear seat. You just lift up on the seat, and it pops right out. If you are having problems with the rear defroster, it could very likely be the control module. This is a combination module which the rear antenna, and the defroster grid plugs in to.
When mine went out I smelled a "burnt wire" smell, then it went out.
To access the module, sit in the back seat, drivers side. There is a trim panel that will be by your left ear as you are looking forward. It is the panel that flares down from the ceiling to the rear deck. Gently pull at the edge of this panel, working around the edges, and the small strip which continues over the top of the door.
The seatbelt goes through this panel, so it will be hanging from the seatbelt at this point. There is a ~3" square, black module with the defroster input and output wires, and the antenna wire plugged into it.
You just unplug the wires, pull the one mounting screw, and voila!
On mine the module was obviously melted, as was the wire going into it. I got the replacement from a salvage yard, as the new one was over $50, and the replacement wire was $18. The salvage yard was unable to look it up, so I had to go out to the yard with them and pull it myself. The final cost was $17 (they tried to charge me $40, and I told them I could get it online for that, and they dropped the price).
You can use a crimp on **** connector to put in the replacement wire, but because of the heat in that area I chose to solder the wires together.
BTW, this module fits a wide range of Buicks, and full size Olds.
Hope this helps.

You need to poke a small extension with a 13mm socket through the holes in the power steering pulley, undo it, and slide it back.

Seat belts are usually not repairable.The only thing that can be done is to check and make sure nothing is stuck in it or that it is not twisted.You have the kind that is in the seat back itself.These are a little more difficult to remove from the seat because it is so easy to break the plastic trim covers.Best thing to do if not familiar with auto repair to go to the dealer or auto repair shop that you trust and have them repair it.Good luck.

The is most likely the chemical that is injected between mirror layers that keeps the mirror from icing on a heated mirror. The seal has deteriorated due to age, most likely. It needs to be replaced with another of the same mirror or a non heated single layer mirror.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the help... I figure it is probably too costly to replace the mirror however."
