G’Day Sunney,
In local parts shops here (Perth) they sell a small tube of brown conductive
paint liquid that has a little paint brush in the cap for repairing gaps in
demister lines. You just cut off the loose hanging bits each side of the
break, scratch the surface of the original lines a bit and then paint a new
path across the gap. Only cost a couple of dollars and worked ok for me. I
am sure if you try a local place near you they will carry this kind of
product. A bit hard to get a neat even thin line like the original with my
fat fingers.

While there are conductive adhesives around, it might be a
lot easier to find some super-glue and the conductive paint
that has been mentioned. Clean the glass and conductive
surface (be gentle here) and glue the connector to the
glass. Then apply a good amount of the conductive paint from
the connector to the pattern on the window. It is probably
best to do this in a few coats rather than in one that might
drip or run. It is important that the connection to the
resistive element on the glass be good or it will fail due
to the high resistance heating up. Pick an adhesive for use
on glass, maybe ‘‘rear view mirror’’ adhesive will be best.

Good luck.

Hi Gerry,

Our local shop sells Bison Elektro. Quite expensive though at about
19 Euro’s for a small three grams tube. But works well. I have used
it to fix the rear window haeting on my xj-6. Try a local
electronics supplier, those guys used it to repair printed circuit
boards.
