    Ummm.. I am puzzled... :confused: Anyone that has a truck cap with sliding side windows: how the heck do you get to the inside part of the sliding window that never "exits" from behind the screen??

    It drives me nuts--I will have a totally clean window except for that last 3 inches or so--and no way to get to it! :goingcrazy:

    I tried lifting out the window (no way).. I tried squeezing a rag between the screen and the glass (too tight--don't want to damage the screen)...

    Wow--this is my BIG issue of the day (things must be going well) ;)

    Holy thread-revival!

    Thanks for the answer two years later, too! Glad somebody's looking into questions from WAY back!

    Yeah. First World Problems, huh?

    Don't have any advice, though. Good luck.

    I'm sure it's great stuff.. but no matter how good it is, it won't do me any good unless I can get to the glass!! Any Ideas?? :confused:

    My question (again): anyone had any luck finding a way to clean the little portion of a sliding window on a truck cap that stays behind the window screen?

    It bugs me that only 95% of the window can be cleaned... :annoyed:

    But maybe I'm too easily bothered... ;)
