Cleaning rear window

Has anyone got any advice on how to reach into the corners of the E90 4 door saloon rear window. Unless you have arms that are really thin four feet long with hands the size of a 6 monh old child it's fecking impossible. It really pisses me of looking in the rearview mirror and seeing dirty marks on the window, yeah I know it's sad

Just get on with it, never easy just have to persevere. You never know someone may have a great idea, fingers crossed.

Fold the rear seats forward, then get in so that your legs are in the boot and you're facing the rear screen?

He said clean the rear window, not how you take your partner in your car.

You'll soon know if they do..........there's a L/H & R/H lever to pull in the top of the boot. Simple to do on the E92, otherwise.........brace yourself:

Remove rear head rests, straddle the rear seats legs apart, with hips and bottom low down, sucking in stomach muscles for a bit of exercise then contort your arms accordingly...........works a treat.

Same goes for Helen, you're just a little more subtle than young William

You need to be a cunning linguist.

Yeah, better than sending them up a chimney eh.

The chimney is being saved for later, if they do it first it leaves helluva soot marks on the interior

Consider something along the lines of a feather duster for the hard to reach places. In other words, some sort of soft cloth with a long arm.

slam it

Valeters use something called a slammer or a big foot:

Wrap a large soft cloth around it and so you can keep hold of it with the handle and rub to your hearts content.
