Sounds like Roy has done this before so he should be able to help..you!
In My situation I had the similar problem and phoned around to local glass companies to see if they knew of anyone who does repairs to the rear defogger /connections etc.
Eventually I did find one and am happy to report that it still works. They have some sort of special commercial grade electrical resin bond they used, that is so strong.
Mine was clean before they did it, without any previous attempt at repair though.
