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.
