it is normal. when you use the defroster, the air conditioner is also working to help dry the air passing over the windshield. this moisture is condensed by the cool evaporator and drained through the floor of the car.

There is a switch on the dashboard to turn on the rear window defroster (also called a rear window defogger in areas that don't have frost). If you cannot locate the switch, take the vehicle to a local dealer of that product, and someone will be happy to show you where the switch is located. If you locate the switch and the defroster will not work, there is likely a blown fuse or faulty wiring, in which case your local dealer will be even happier to repair it for you - for an appropriate fee.

I brought mine to the dealer...not cheap. They are going to try a "kit" to reattach it...$50. IF that doesn't work, they need to replace the entire back window at a cost of $800. To me, this is an item JEEP should replace for free - as it is a manufacture's defect.
