How they work
The defroster elements are sandwiched between two pieces of release paper that when separated allow perfect alignment on the glass. Defrosting is accomplished through contact between the Clear View defroster elements and the window.
The defroster is connected electrically through the buss bar tabs and activated with the automatic ThermaSync defroster control and switch.
Defrost the wiper push area
In tough winter conditions wipers can push snow into areas at the sides of the windshield. This snow build up can limit wiper movement and interfere with visibility. Clear View II Side Defrosters put the heat along the edge of the windshield melting snow and ice in this critical area.
The heating elements come on pre-spaced rolls which are trimmed for a custom fit when installed. The self-adhesive heating elements bond directly to the glass and connect to the defrosters side buss bars.
A cover is then applied to the buss bars for a finished factory appearance. The side buss bars include integral tabs are positioned for easy connection to the ThermaSync® defroster control.
A cover is applied to the buss bars for a finished factory appearance. Heating elements match the brownish color of factory defrosters and adhere directly to the glass for improved visibility and safe winter driving. No backing is left on the window to fade, crack or yellow over time.
