'83 MB 300D rear defront spotty

The rear defrost only works in specific areas (usually around the edges).
The defrost wires appear to be on the inside of the car. They are not imbedded in the glass.
Can this be repaired?
Would a new back glass have the defrost wires imbedded in the glass (like most new cars)?
