Yup :!:

All the grid lines in an Insight are for the defogger. Many Accords and Acuras have some lines as a multilpe antenna. (the also have a "standard" antenna stick).

So the dealer was 1/2 right but didn't know his Insight (yawn). Sad but commonly true. And the guys in the shop that would know, or know where to look to find it, don't answer the phone for a living. ;)

Service Manual p.g. 22-103-105 detail function and possible repairs. Most commonly somebody gets agressive with a razor scraper and gouges off _hunk_ of grid line or *two* before :idea: oops :!: goes off ;)

Such damage isn't covered under warranty. Hairline cracks and gouges up to 1" are repairable. See the SM for the proceedure.

HTH! :)
