Ok, So like many of you I have had the rear window defrost connection come off of the glass. In my attempt to re-solder the Button Snap from the connector back onto the glass I managed to lose the actual snap that solders to the glass. So without replacing the glass....anyone know how to get a hold of a replacement?

Yeah, you’re probably paying out of pocket for a repair now. If you hadn’t they would have probably replaced the glass, when it comes off backorder.

Just out of curiosity - has this been found to be an "early model" defect? Hopefully replacements don't continue to have the same problem.

I just checked mine and they're solid, assembled Nov. '18.

I am currently waiting for my replacement too, I work at the Jeep dealer and just checked..we've had a couple back glasses come in but the rest of our orders aren't in yet and have an expected delivery date within the first week of April. Knowing Chrysler, that date will most likely change.

My assembly date was July 2018. No indication of a failure.

How early is early? My old 15 JK and my wife’s 16 popped off lol
Technically can add it to it’s a Jeep thing list. No frame work around the glass allowing it to flex seems to be part of the issue with them popping off

To the OP, if the dealer is back ordered on it can try local glass shops. They may carry them or get one aftermarket

My 18 JLU has the same problem of contact on back window coming un soldered and a consistant squeak from the the back window also. Have had a new one ordered under warranty for 8 weeks. Dealer says there you s a back log after seeing these posts I now understand why.
