    The defroster clip is an electonic connection that connects to the strips in the glass.

    Yes it does for your defroster grid to work. Locktite used to sell a defroster grid repair kit that included a paint mask you put on the window to outline the missing grid area. There was also a special electrically conductive paint and brush-in-cap in the kit: you had to first clean the area to be painted with alcohol. You can probably get the kit at Peps Boys or Auto Zone. I don't know if the paint is strong enough to act as a "glue" for the clip, but you should definitely apply a layer of paint to connect the grid to the clip.

    Awesome! I called up LOCTITE and they gave me a conductive glue. The part # is 21351. You can also use it to fix the strips.
