Rear Window Defog Problem, 96' 140 Body-help!

is the only thread I found using "defrost", "defroster", "defog", and "defogger" with "140" and "rear". With luck, it might possibly start you somewhere productive. Hope it helps-

Steve? Any ideas?

Relay is in trunk

You should find the defroster relay on the right rear sidewall of your trunk. My 95 S had a small fuse box with a door, but this relay is too far to the rear to easily access from the door, so I had to remove the panel on trunk wall. Best I remember the relay was pink (??) I had to use wet or dry sand paper to re-surface the contacts inside the relay. This brought my defroster back. I did find a post with picture on this board so do the search you'll find good help here. Luck to you, DanielW
