Default Ideas wanted. Rear defrost grid.

89 240 rear defrost grid. Only a few lines at the top actually do anything. Any ideas on the best/ easiest way to fix this? New back window is not an option. Also went to a couple of auto parts store to get a brake light switch for same car, all the aftermarket ones say for a standard car and have bullet connectors. Mine has spade connectors. IPD has MTC for about $6.00 and OE Volvo for over $30. What's up with that?

Never saw any 240 or even a 140 with bullet connectors on the brake light switch. They have that listed wrong. Genuine is nice but if the MTC looks decent I'd try it.

I think they sell a paint for the defrost grid that should help you repair it.

I was trying to find what we used to use at the dealership back in the 90's. I thought it was gold based. However, I did find one based on silver:

The better kits are a bit more expensive than say the permatex or other box store offerings. A bad repair can cause you to replace that window.
