Repair rear window defrogger

I have a 2007 Tahoe. The rear window defrogger connection has broken on one side of the window. The metal tab on the window broke free and clean from the solder joint. I tried Permatex repair kit, but is not working. Is there a way to test electrical connection there? Any ideas appreciated..

Thanks John

I used that kit several times with good success. Not working in what manner? tab does not stay in place, or defroster does not work after you fixed everything to your knowledge?

A more effective video for your situation would be the following one right from Permatex.
Looks at the end of the video.
