    Well i flipped the t handle. But to get the glass open i had to make my own mechanism to open the window, by using the key lock. I had to put a spring on it to take some of the tension off. I think it works pretty good.

    Well I wouldn't say I lost any function. Sure its a change to open it, but it takes the same or less to open the hatch. As far as the wiper goes... I never really used it any way.. Even on my 2002 explorer I rarely use it.

    Why not look into using electric actuators? They can be had very cheap, then you can shave the lock too.

    I have my glass on a pull solenoid to open. If I need to get in the back, I will pop the glass, reach in and twist the T-handle.

    EASY!
