  • Rear side window openers

    Has anyone rigged a mechanism, either a manual or electric, to operate the two windows from the driver's seat?
    I've been looking at it. I bought two 5 RPM 12V gear motors and been scratching my head. The rear seat-belt upper attach points are in the way of what I had in mind.

    I believe people have used Dodge Caravan or Mazda MPV components before... I have seen pictures and even a video around here. I don't know where you'd start with the search function though... there are definitely some threads on it though!
