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.

How do i get the rear window heater to work?

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.

Bring it to the dealer and pay for the 1 hour dealer service, plus $14 per bulb - 2 are needed. Otherwise, you need a "trim tool" to pry open the top of the compartment holder; and hope you do it correctly w/out breaking the plastic, then use a screwdriver to release the clock mount, then replace the bulbs, clock mount, and snap the top of the compartment back in place, without doing any damage to the dash or compartment holder.
