What is quarter window glass?

The small, wedge-shaped windows are generally positioned near the joints of your car and are referred to as quarter windows. These windows are normally the end piece of glass on either side of the vehicle. Quarter Glass Repair windows are placed at the front or rear end of the car, along with the retractable windows. Such windows are also recognized as ‘Quarter Glass’ or even ‘valence windows’ (in older vehicles). Quarter windows were introduced into the market in the 1950s. Quarter glass is basically a side window. Unlike, vent windows, a quarter glass cannot open.

Typically, modern cars do include quarter windows, but their purpose is less significant as compared to earlier generations. The reason behind this is the absence of air conditioning. As a result, quarter and vent windows were solely responsible for cross-ventilation and sufficient breathing space for the driver and passengers traveling in the vehicle. This type of glass was particularly famous before the emergence of AC in cars.

Do I need to get my quarter window fixed or replaced?

As quarter windows are more than often made from the same material as that of the rear windshields, it is advised to address a professional if the pane is impacted by certain debris. Also, several people are under the impression that the replacement of the quarter glass is low-priced due to its small size. However, this depends on the company of the car, or the intensity of the crack. Any defect noticed in this part of the car could potentially affect the integrity and overall structure of the car. Consequently, it is necessary to pay special attention to these parts as well.

When my windshield cracked while driving on the highway late one afternoon, I was at a loss as to what to do. After talking with my insurance and being told to contact them with my preferred vendor, I got to Google-ing and Yelp-ing to find a provider in the area. GlassFixIt had great reviews and was close to my apartment. It was late in the day (around 5:30pm) so I wasnt't sure if anyone would answer, but Suyog picked up the phone quickly and after asking some questions about my car windshield, told me I could bring my car in first thing in the morning to get my windshield replaced. I brought my car at 8am and Suyog and his guys got to work right away. He said it would be done in about an hour! I opted to go back home to sleep and return later in the afternoon. I was able to confirm with Suyog via text that my car was ready before I came back over there. I was so glad to have a new, intact windshield! I appreciated that GlassFixIt also provided care instructions. I would highly recommend and I will use GlassFixIt in the future if I need to have any glass repaired/replaced on my car.

This place is run very professionally, it took them 15min to replace my passenger side rear window glass and vent glass. It was super fast. Manager is very supportive and gives accurate pricing and there is NO need to bargain, it was the best I could around in SJ Downtown area. They also have Wifi, which did not work for me also my job was done even before I was able to connect to Internet.
