The tailgate glass articulation angle is determined by the gas springs. Depending on time and mileage this may be covered under warranty as long as there was no outside interferance with the wireing harness.

After this is repaired, you may want to add these wiring protection covers:

My body shop says the tailgate window isn't supposed to go that high and break the wire off, is this a warranty issue I'm fn pissed off
Your body shop guy doesn't know what he's talking about. That is exactly how high it is supposed to go.

I reattached mine with the Permatex stuff last summer. Haven't found out if the rear defroster works yet. Wouldn't matter, all I can see is a 37" tire back there, and no dangling wire!

Had mine done twice by dealer. Once re glued second replaced glass. Neither worked. So I just glue and re glue when it falls off
I bought some Loctite brand glue I'll see if that fixes it I might follow the wires and see if I can pull a bit more wire out

the round button can be soldered, using Rosin, its quick, double check about the wire itself and if it can be extended an inch or so prior to solder
