Check of serviceability of functioning and recovery repair of a heater of back glass

See preventions at the beginning of the Section Check of Serviceability of Functioning and Replacement of the Breaker of Indexes of Turns / the alarm system and the switch of the last.


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. The working element of a heater of back glass represents a horizontal lattice from the conducting threads pasted on the internal surface of glass. Activation of a heater is made by means of the switch located on the car dashboard. Check serviceability of functioning of the switch (see the Section Check of Serviceability of Functioning and Replacement of the Switch of Heating of Back Glass).
2. Small breaks of conducting threads of a lattice of a working element of the heater can be eliminated without dismantle of back glass.

Check

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Include ignition and a heater of back glass. Press the positive probe of the voltmeter to the positive plug of a lattice of a heating element, press the negative probe to the grounding plug. The device has to register battery tension, otherwise check a condition of a safety lock, the switch and a connecting electrical wiring. If tension normal, however, a part of the heater does not work. You pass to the following stage of check.
2. To measure tension during the checks described below wind the positive probe of the voltmeter with a metal foil which will be directly easy to be pressed a finger to conducting thread of a lattice of a heating element (address an accompanying illustration). Connect the negative probe of the measuring instrument to the plug of grounding of a lattice.
3. Measure tension in the central part of each of lattice threads. The indication in 5 – 6 V confirms serviceability of a condition of thread. The zero indication speaks about existence of break between the center of thread and a positive side of an element. Overestimate of the indication twice (10 – 12 V) happens in the presence of break between the center of thread and a negative side of an element. Serially check each of lattice threads.
4. In the absence of breaks connect the negative probe to the mass of the chassis and repeat check, indications should not change, otherwise violation of quality of grounding of a lattice takes place.
5. For localization of break press the negative probe of the voltmeter to the negative plug of a lattice of a heating element. The positive probe which is wrapped up by a foil begin to probe conducting threads of a lattice, moving from giving of food to weight. In a break point instrument reading has to reduce from several volts to zero.

Recovery repair

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Restoration of integrity of conducting threads is made by means of special two-component electrowire paste like Dupont No. 4817.
2. Before starting recovery repair of a lattice of a working element switch off a heater and let's an element cool down within several minutes.
3. Slightly smooth out the damaged site of thread felt, then carefully wipe it with alcohol.
4. Paste two strips of an adhesive tape along the site of thread which is subject to restoration.
5. Carefully mix epoxy paste with a hardener (follow the instructions enclosed in set).
6. Apply the received structure on the damaged site (with an overlap approximately in 20 mm on edges of the intact thread) (address an accompanying illustration).
7. Final polymerization of a compound happens in 24 hours after which protective strips of an adhesive tape can be removed from glass.
