Rear window defroster wire short on '96 S320 (W140)
A buddy of mine has a '96 S320 and has recently replaced his rear window for the third time. It seems that the defroster wires are sandwiched in between the glass panes and repair is just not possible. Unfortunately, these wires keep shorting and because his Signature class warranty is expiring shortly, he's concerned. Cost of rear glass alone is over $3000 plus labour to install. Is this a common problem with the W140 or unique to just him?
