Even the front is tricky, because there's hardly any room left between the dash and the pivot hinge on the backside of this tool.
I didn't realize there was a pivot piece until I watched the corny-ass amazon video. I lol'ed when users cleaned the exterior windows. Like why???

I almost think using a micro cloth wrapped around a 5-gallon paint stir stick might be better for the rear window bottom.

It works, but as arpad_m says there are some clearance issues because of the pivot point in my other car.
Consider yourself warned. The rear is harder to reach than any other car I've owned.

Either your piece is smaller (mine is yellow), or perhaps our definitions of "works" is different then. It doesn't reach the bottom of the rear glass without its hinge scraping on the rear deck, not enough clearance. Guess I could shove it further down with more force, but hard plastic or not, I don't want to scrape the deck or even the speaker grilles.

Mine arrived today. First I want to say, for the camaro, I didn't need the extension poll, but may for my wife's car.. It did really good job on the front glass. I have not tried on any other glass yet. I will probably use the device every other wash and the days I prep for car shows. I also want to see how it handles windows with tint such as back window. Little bit of a learning curve as to remember to focus on inner glass not outer when approaching edges.

Not for that price. I have the Invisible Glass-like tool I bought from Griot's Garage years ago that works very well.

Tried mine today on my Camaro. It works great, started with the blue cloth and doused it in cleaner on both sides. Dried with yellow cloth and finished with the anti-static pads they included. No streaks, no glare nothing!

It will not fit over the bottom lip of the HUD. It fits and works everywhere else on the car. I was even able to clean the entire back window for the first time since I got the car! (WOW was it dirty!). I am very satisfied. I don't know if it was worth 130.00 but it sure makes doing your windows easy!

Are any of your windows tinted? I have not tried it on my tinted windows yet.

Just remember to only use the microfiber pads on tinted windows - the sheets (melamine?) will damage your tint.

they are not, but as Sully said their website says only use the microfiber pads and not the white sheets that come with it on tinted windows.
