    Use the key. You have to turn and hold it for it to lower. (Left to lower and right to raise I believe)

    You can do it with the standard remote but the dealership has to program it to do so, according to the manual.

    Things with stuff, but nothing much
    My impression of the manual's explanation, and combined with other internet searching, makes me think the standard remote can only be dealer programmed to lower the 4 main windows, not the rear window.

    Which sucks!

    My dealer quoted $95 to do any / all of the programming changes - which also kind of sucks.

    Nice, it was obvious on my BMW but, didn't know it was even an option on the T4R.

    I'll be figuring that out this week.

    I had a 2005 that had a rear window lowing button on the remote. My 2015, no. I really liked it. On those hot blistering days I would lower the rear window on the way to my vehicle to release some of the heat.

    Being able to remotely lower the four side widows is still a plus.
