2018 Hyundai Tucson WS plug

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what this plug is for on the windshield? First time ever dealing with a plug not associated with mirror itself! I’ve tried looking it up and maybe my wording isn’t the best. I’m not sure. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks! That’s what I was leaning towards myself. However, this is very unfamiliar for me. I guess I could call Hyundai and ask. That was my last resort. The plug is really odd shaped on the back side. Only half of it touched the glass. I’m unsure on my approach to tint a sun strip up there.

It's a defogging sensor. Here's the spec from my glass suppliers online.

You should be able to gently unstick it, stay close to the glass if using a blade as there is normally a bit of exposed circuit board that can be easily damaged glass side. Normally when changing the screen you just unstick it and restick to the new glass, quite common on BMW's.

Would tint effect the functionality of it? Also, is there a specific glue to re-apply it? 

 

You’re overthinking it.  Just unplug it and cut around it.  No need to remove it.  It will be fine.  Trying to remove it is more trouble than it’s  worth.   I Have cut around many things like this without removing them.
