Default Cleaning the inside of the rear coupe window behind the center brake light?

Anyone have any great ideas on how to clean the inside of the rear window
behind the center brake light? I looked in the manual and I called Honda -
no good ideas!

Thanks,

I just have to undo a couple of screws and unfasten the
light fixtures (from within the trunk) to take the rear
center brake light housing off and give that part of the
window a cleaning.

The screws have a couple of little covers hiding them. Pop
out the covers with a super slim screwdriver. Be careful not
to mar any surfaces.

What year and model of Honda do you have?

On my '92 Accord, the center brake lamp unit can't be removed. Can only
slide a length of moist towel between the fixture and glass. I found it
easiest to do by folding the seat back down and crawling into the trunk
until I can sit looking out the back glass with my feet sticking out the
trunk. Don't laugh! (Ah, what the heck. Laugh)

I ended up wrapping 1/2 of a 'shop paper towel' around the end of a 1
gallon paint stir stick, soaking it with aerosol window cleaner, and forcing
it between the glass the the light housing. Not pretty, but better than it
was!!

No laughing here. Men this dedicated to the cleanliness of
their car are keepers, IMO. :-)

Way to be creative, Glen!

I've used a little plastic/rubber spatula as it is somewhat flexible.
