Here's a small tip

If you have rear hinged seats, put them down to clean the rear window and deck. Some of you probably know this already but I just discovered this tip when I was trying to get at a dead stink bug out that lodged itself in the corner where the window meets the deck. I guess it won't work for those that don't have the fold-down rear seats.

I just couldn't reach that bug and I was getting the back seat leather all sweaty and the window was getting smudges from my knuckles. I had to go back to the trunk for something, I can't remember what for now, and then when I saw the fold-down unlock handles it hit me. Such a simple but effective solution.

So, when you're cleaning the rear window just fold down the rear seats and the job will be much easier.


I've been assimilated. 6MT/ZPP/18"/PS extended.
