Default Is it possible to open the rear window of a Honda CR-V separately from the tail gate?

Exactly how much of a hassle is it to open the tailgate to the side with the spare tire on there?

What year do you have? The first generation cr-v's (1997-2001) the glass must be opened first before the tail gate can swing open. The fact the glass opens first means most of the time you are loading items into the back without having to even open the gate itself. This also allows for loading of long items through the window and allowing object to stick out the rear window, very handy. The second generation (2002-2006) has a solid rear tail gate that open all together and the glass does not open independently. The most recent redesign has a tail gate that open up like most modern hatchback/wagons and no longer has a spare on the back, again you cannot open the rear glass on it's own on this model. The swing out door is a bit of a pain but you do get used to it and it's no big deal, spare wheel is not in the way.
