Rear Quarter Glass

A quarter glass (also called a quarter lite or a valence window in earlier vehicles) is a side window. Whatever you call them, they’re an often-overlooked piece of glass that plays a crucial role in the vehicle’s safety and security, as well as providing the driver with all-around visibility. Quarter glass on either side of the load-carrying (or additional passenger) compartment can occasionally be opened to enable ventilation in vehicles.

In cars, the quarter glass is usually found next to the retractable window in the front door or rear door – they aren’t found in as many cars these days, and there is some overlap in functioning with front and rear vent glass. The term ‘quarter’ refers to the fact that they are roughly a quarter of the size of the main windows and are frequently triangular in design.

In the days before air conditioning, opening quarter glass was an important component of keeping cars cool and well-ventilated. The use of opening quarter windows in cars has generally been phased away with the introduction of in-car climate control and the necessity to attain the best possible gas mileage by simplifying the appearance of vehicles.

Mobile specialists arrive in a van that is completely equipped for all types of automotive glass services, and as long as they can park safely and close enough to your vehicle, they may meet you wherever you are.

In extremely bad weather, a drive-in to your local repair shop for a glass repair may be preferable, but your technician may advise you on the best option when you make your appointment.

If you choose a drive-in service at your local repair shop, you will benefit from an indoor waiting area where you can stay warm and dry while the work is being done. It’s usually preferable to waiting on the side of the road in bad weather. You can count on competent work done at a reasonable price.
