Finally got mine put 2 weeks ago. 6 months without a rear glass window was tough, hopefully never again.

Does anyone know why the glass shatters after the dealer fixed it? What causes the excessive heating of the window?

Overheating.

You would think it has an auto-off safety feature, but when it's just glued/stuck back on, the chances of it working like before is low. I remember seeing the heating element lines burn orange until the glass exploded. It is most likely due to the voltage and shit being different since being reattached, therefore the auto-off feature doesn't know when to shut off. It will keep heating until blam!
