Car quarter windows are a great way to add some style and functionality to your vehicle. They allow the driver to view an area that would typically be a “blind spot.” In addition, when small windows appear on the front of a vehicle, they allow the driver to increase the visibility of side-view mirrors and the front of the vehicle.


What are Car Quarter Windows?

Quarter windows are smaller than side windows, and they’re usually located on the back half of a car’s door. They’re most often found in older models, but you can still find them in newer cars too.

The purpose of quarter windows is to give a little extra ventilation (and light) without compromising visibility. If you live in a warmer climate and need some fresh air, or if your car gets stuffy during winter months when it’s cold outside, then opening your quarter window will allow some extra airflow even when the rest of your windows are shut.

Vintage Cars With Rear Quarter Windows

Rear quarter windows are a common feature on vintage cars, and for good reason. They add style and character to the car and can be opened to let in some fresh air.

The rear quarter windows are generally smaller than the front ones. The rear window will often have a curved shape as well, making it possible for you to fit a custom-made piece of glass into place.

The interior of your car is an important part of any vehicle’s design (especially if you want to make sure that it’s comfortable). There are many different ways that you can customize your car’s interior depending on how much effort or money you’re willing to put into it—and one way is by adding a custom-cut piece of glass into one of its windows! This can be done by removing all traces of what was there before–including trimming off any extra pieces–and then placing this new piece inside where everything else had been taken away from beforehand; once everything has been cleaned up properly inside out with soap water spray then dry thoroughly before installing new seals around where it fits perfectly into place so nothing leaks out onto other surfaces nearby.”


Modern Cars with Rear Quarter Windows

Rear quarter windows are those that are located in the back of the vehicle. These windows are most commonly found on four-door cars, vans, and SUVs, although they can also be found on trucks. The rear quarter window is usually made out of plastic or glass and attaches to a metal frame. It’s not as common as it used to be but you’ll still see plenty of these on newer models today.

The rear quarter window is often divided into two parts: one part will open while the other remains closed so that you can access items stored behind your seat(s). Some vehicles have sliding rear doors instead of regular ones with buttons that slide up or down like most modern cars today do; this doesn’t mean there aren’t any buttons at all though because many times there’s one for both sides together (left side for left door, right side for right door).


The Advantages and Disadvantages of Car Quarter Windows

There are some advantages and disadvantages of car quarter windows. Here is a list of the best-known ones:


  • They provide excellent ventilation, which keeps your car cool during hot weather.
  • They allow you to enjoy the airy feeling inside your vehicle without being bothered by insects or dust.
  • They allow more light into your car, which makes it easier to drive at night or in foggy conditions.


  • There are some difficulties in cleaning them if they become dirty (because of their size).


Tips for Best Maintaining Your Car Quarter Windows

To keep your car’s quarter windows in good condition, you should always use a microfiber cloth. If you have a car that has rear quarter windows, make sure to clean them regularly. If you have a car that has front quarter windows, make sure to clean them regularly. You can use window cleaner to clean the windows.


Why did carmakers stop adding front quarter windows to cars?

It’s likely that the lack of front quarter windows came about for a variety of reasons. For one, as cars became more aerodynamic, they were able to pass wind tunnel tests by using less air conditioning and other cooling systems. This meant there was less need for front quarter windows to cool the engine bay in transverse-engine vehicles (those with engines mounted perpendicular to their axles).

Secondly, the addition of front quarter windows would add weight to the vehicle without providing much benefit or function. The absence of these windows also decreases aerodynamic drag while reducing overall vehicle weight by eliminating unnecessary glass and metal components.



After reading through this article, we hope you have a better idea of how your car’s windows work and what to look for when you need to replace them. If you’re still unsure about whether or not it’s worth getting new quarter windows installed on your vehicle, it might help to know that these types of repairs can be done by an auto glass shop in just one day!
