    Not sure what's going on. I don't use it often if at all since i live in Florida but i noticed the rear defrost doesn't work lately. Not sure if something came loose around the window or what.

    Probably needs the whole rear window replaced. Sort of a common problem. If you push the rea deforst button does the light turn on then off?

    It doesn't come on at all. No biggie luckily. Truck will never see ice. I sometimes like using it when the windows are wet or a little foggy which is rarely. I might take it to ford anyway as it should still be under warranty.

    Sounds like a smart next step to me, ThomasL. How many miles are on your Raptor? Tell us how the appointment goes; I'll keep an eye on this thread in case you need my assistance.

    Just recently had the same issue @ 30k miles. Both my father-in-law and dad have had the same problems. Only way to fix seems to be replace the entire back window.

    Hi cjf1001,

    Did you already have your defrost repaired or are you holding off for now? I'm here to help.

    Hi Spencer4336,

    Your dealer will make sure you're seeing clearly again; do you have plans to visit them soon? What's your Raptor's model year/mileage?

    I'm glad that this has already been resolved, cjf1001! If you need any help in the future, feel free to reach out.

    Crystal
