Megane demister not working

Hi all, I'm new to this forum so hope you can help...?
I have a Renault Megane Coupe 1.6 1996, the problem I have is that the demister on the rear windscreen has decided to pack up on me (just in time for those frosty mornings!) The light on the button comes on, and to be doubly sure I also checked the fuse, which is okay, plus the connectors on the rear windscreen seem to be intact and no signs of corrosion.
I've looked in The Haynes manual but no obvious clues to the problem, I would be grateful for any assistance. Cheers!!

Check that there is power at the connections using a volt meter or a bulb tester, if there is then it's the element that is damaged, you can get paint from Halfrauds to repair it.

Hi its sounds like that there is power to the switch.If you have a circuit tester test the switch when on to see if theres power going out as well as coming into the if not you will have to replace the switch.You will get a switch from local breakers yard in your area hope this helps
