Who has repaired a rear window defrost connection?

My '02 Tahoe had one of the rear window defrost wires disconnect from the window. It looks like I can just solder it back together. Does anyone know if there is anything special that needs to be done. Thanks

I might try that. I'm curious if the current would work through the glue.

The glue is formulated for this application. You shouldn't have any trouble with this connection again once its fixed. I've used similar glue like this meant for rear view mirrors and the glue is better than factory original.
The other bonus is this article lays it all out for you.

I didn't even read the article. I thought they were using rear view mirror glue.

I bought the repair kit, it's like metallic nail polish, works great for reattaching the connector
