Mine is tail gate, but others have reported using a pencil eraser and then spraying contact cleaner/lube or some such protective liquid.

Many have reported that this has solved it and not come back. Others have reported that they do this every few years.

As for the glass defogger/heater, check the wiring from the contacts to the grid with a multi meter for continuity. Some times the tab on the glass has broken and the wire is just there with no electrical connection.

Some have resoldered with success. Others have purchased a kit that has a conductive epoxy.

Check #1 Son's place for the write ups.

No help on the number of contacts and hope someone chimes in with that info.
