As long as you have the ready struts no. They come with the spring and mount already attached. If you don't, you better have a good spring compressor to remove the old strut and replace it with a new one.

How come on my 2005 pontiac aztek if i take out the rear defroster fuse (#21) the light still lights up on my dash and the relay still clicks?? Help why did this rear defroster stop working?!?


I found this. Your heated mirror also works off that relay. You can do ohms test on the grid, if the grid is open, no continuity. The auto store should sell a product to paint over the open spot to restore continuity, if you can find the open spot.
Not trying to cause trouble, just killing time. Have a good day.

For impala 2005defroster for rear window


If the rear window has a defroster grid, check for continuity on the grid, If none, the grid is broken, the auto store should have some grid repair for that. you find the broken spot in the grid and paint over it to restore continuity.

Otherwise, I'd have to check voltage and ground for the grid.

Rear Defroster not working-getting some volts


You should have battery voltage at one side of the grids and it should decrease as you run a meter probe across the grind due to the resistance of the grid strips.

Rear defroster doesnt work already reset breaker and check fuses but one fuse in manual not on panel


i think this is a grid type(wires) rear defroster as opposed to a fan style.then when you push the button to turn on the rear defroster you should hear a click this tells you the system is working from the fuse to the rear window.what you have to do is check the rear window grid(wires) with a test light and you will probably find some of the grids not working which indicates a break in the grid line and needs repair.you start with a test light at one end and you should see it light up brightly at one end of the grid and as you move along the grid wire to the other side of the window you should see the light gradually get dimmer,when you hit a spot were the light stops working you just have to norrow down the area of the break and mark it with a marker below the grid,when you have done the complete window you will know the areas that need repair.you can buy a defroster grid repair kit and repair it.follow the directions.before checking the grid wires check the area where the car wires connect to the window at both sides of the window.sometimes there is a problem in this area.

Rear defogger doesn't work even though dash lite works


Couple of things to check - first look for any scratches through lines, a couple of scratches will not let power run from side to side. The other is -> with a test light or voltage meter -> put (+)cable of meter/light to small electrical connector that attached to your window and (-) cable to a good ground (metal) light will come on/meter should read voltage there.

If the circuit is broken somewhere in in the middle, non of the grid will work because the circuit was never closed. There some Defroster Grid Repair Kits available at most Auto Parts stores. Easy to use, instructions included. No need to replace whole window. Check AutoZone or Checkers if available.

I have a 2002 Corolla GS. Rear window defroster not working


The main cause for the rear window not working is a disconnected wire at either side of the defroster grid. You can see where the body harness connects to the rear glass.

The second most liekly cause are broken defroster grid wires.

I would suggest to you to obtain a 12 volt DC testlamp, and check for voltage as follows, at the rear defroster.

Hook the clamp of the testlamp up to a known good ground. The back door latch 'hoop' is great. Next, turn on the rear defroster, and place the point of the tip on the extreme side of the back window, on the grid. Does it the tester light up bright? If not, try the other side.

The light, moving across the grid, should get noticeably dimmer, if the grid is functioning properly. The light will go out when you encounter a broken grid wire..

How do I repair non-working rear defrost window? Currently my front defrost works, but the AC pump is broken and non-functioning. Does that have anything to do with the rear defrost? Where do I check for...


Hello.
The rear defroster isn't affected by a/c operation.
The most common issue I see in my shop is the rear grid damaged.
The wire you see in the rear glass is a resistor type conductor which builds heat as electricity passes through it. If the grid wires get scratched it is like a broken wire and will not build up heat as there is an interruption in the flow.
First thing is verify your fuses are good and the indicator light comes on when the switch is depressed.If they are OK proceed to the next check.
If you look carefully at each side of the glass there is a wire connected to the grid. If these have come loose or become corroded that is where your problem has most likely occurred.
To test it a 12 volt test light or a multimeter should light or read battery voltage applied at each side of the glass grid.
If indeed the grid is damaged there is a repair kit available to fill in the gap at your local auto supplier.
Hope this helps you with your repair.

Rear Defroster


12 volts is supplied to the grid across the glass.Turn rear defrost on and check for voltage and continuity across the grid...any broken spot in the grid will cause an open circuit and inoperative heater.
