    Default Honda City Defogger

    Defogger of my City 2005 has completely died. 3 years ago it started with two circuits not working to all gone bad by now. Went to Honda Workshop but they told me I've to replace the enitre rear windshild for that.

    Friends, can you help me get it repaired? Is there a way to do it? I've seen a DIY to repair a few circuits of iDSi but mine is completely gone bad. Also I don't have time to read and do it myself. Also, plz suggest a Mechanic in Lahore who could repair it.

    If its completely gone bad, then you have to get the whole glass changed.

    same problem for my car
    i used to keep luggage, tissue paper box etc in the deck below the windscreen, that screwed the defogger... but im NOT gonna change the windscreen just for that, i ve learned to be more careful and use side view mirrors...

    @ Faheemboy...although I might live with that...but I cant understand why it went bad in the first place? Most of the times, its only me who uses this car and I use it with gr8 care. Just can't accept this without a reason.

    I used to have Corolla 86 for some 18 yrs (Feb 90 to Dec '07), till the last day, its defogger was working fine although we used the car a bit too roughly!!! Wish the new cars had the same quality.

    Sir you should be able to find cheaper pieces in scrap yards such as Bilal Ganj. But me personally would only trust Honda for such things.

    well, cant be sure of the reason but someone told me that when u get ur car serviced at some service station, the guys there use a wet cloth to clean the inner side of ur windscreen.the usually clean the glass in and up-down-up-down way, i mean vertically, that can also screw the defogger.its always better to clean it by horizontal movements...

    if they use something abrasive while cleaning it will destroy the heating elements - but just to make sure - have you checked all fuses and defog relay - for operation.

    If the elements have not been destroyed - you can use an electric transfer paint and see where each - element has broken, repair one at a time. - I believe that the 05 citys rear pillar moulding scratches the heater element breaking them all at once.

    There was a thread here somewhere on repairing it. And I beleive the person had the exact same problem as yours
