Good point.

Baby Huey So why not just remove the wiper, peel off the heat strip, plug the holes with Clear Epoxy and presto, done deal.... "BH"

COStrider Hey...do a search or scroll to find the BARN DOOR thread. Might be right up your alley

COStrider Would it be feasible to have someone custom cut you a piece of safety glass? Then maybe it's possible to swap them out. Or do you need the defroster feature?

Have you considered to just folding the seats down? Way better visibility IMHO ! Plus you have the headrest if a seat proportionate person needs a ride. (I didn't even say the world)

suicideking I've also looked at the wiper in disgust and thought: Couldn't they find a way to have a wiper and not block that large of an area?

It would also be nice if you could remove the rear window, some kind of quick release kit. That way if you want to wheel, or haul something that sticks out the back, you could just remove the window completely.

speedracre Problem is, if you take wiper off, there is that black stuff on window, same size as motor housing. What engineer designed that? Its useless. without it in the way, I'd have some good visibiltiy

I had taken my headrests off too, though I had car seats back there anyhow. I still have them off even without the car seats, but I don't have anyone in the back seat now anyhow.

To the OP, I wonder if you would be able to take the wiper assembly off and plug the hole on the glass. I don't know what size hole it would leave though.

"Normal size" define "Normal" because I have had no issue with friends ranging 5'-6' weighing 110-200lbs sitting back there. Getting in/out of a 2-door is sometimes tricky but once your inside I have been told that the seating is comfortable.

Freedom Top Rear Window

Is there such a thing as a rear window WITHOUT the silly wiper assembly?
