      Oh. That rear defroster element has both vertical and horizontal lines (concentric rectangle shapes). In my car's manual, I've read that it's best to clean "along the grain" and not across the lines. It looks a lot more difficult to do that with this window.

      You mean on the inside? I expect very few will be getting into that area on the Model 3. The area behind the rear seats isn't the most easily accessible space. Assuming that children are seated and buckled in, they won't be messing about there either. The occasional fingerprint or handprint directly above their heads should be easily cleaned, without bothering about the defroster lines at all, I think. Just make sure you have a squeegee on hand.

      It should be pretty easy to get into that area with the seats folded flat.

      Hmmm... You don't understand. Since the Model 3 has a trunk and is not a liftback, the flat shelf area behind the seats is a fixed structural member that encloses the trunk. Think of the 'arrow' rear window style of 40+ year old Buicks. A small, young child would have to invert themselves, while climbing backward over the rear seats onto that shelf in order to put greasy paw prints from chocolate, mud pies, and chicken grease in that area. I know, because I was one of those kids, tall and lean for my age (I was probably taller than my 5'-2" Mom before I finished 2nd Grade), and I still couldn't reach all the way back there, and the shelf on the Model 3 is even deeper. In today's world, where Children are strapped tightly into booster seats from birth until the ripe young age of eight or nine, they would never get a chance to make the rear window dirty to begin with, so there's no need to go back there to clean from the inside. In fact, if you pay someone to tint that rear glass, they'll take your money sure, but the guy who has to work on it will curse your name 'til Kingdom Come.

      Yes. A great picture of the inside of the trunk with the rear seats folded. And the roof of the trunk. Where you cannot reach the rear windshield glass, or the defroster lines on them at all. Thanks!

          Güdt. I noticed this in the schematic drawing behind Elon Musk on the video wall at the Model ☰ Unveil. Since there is nothing directly above the heads of rear seat passengers but the glass, the fixed 'shelf' directly behind the rear seats, but under the glass, acts as a structural member to hold the left & right sides of the car together. I hope these screen captures and video will show what I speak of more clearly than I may have been able to explain verbally...

            I have one of those green "as seen on tv" window cleaners with a long handle. $5-$6 on eBay. Makes it really easy to reach every nook and cranny on my S.
