    I just picked up a lx hatch with defroster but my car has no such thing. How can I incorporate the defroster in my car? Are the wires already there but I need the switch?

    switch from a gt will fit right in. Its the one below your hazard switch. You likely have the wiring from ford tucked up in the rear quarter covers

    The wires did have a ground loop on one of them. After I hear back from the insurance company I will start putting on the "new" hatch

    There is a relay inside the dash associated with the defroster. No idea if it's present on cars not equipped. Highly doubt it though. So you'd need to add this as well
