Warning


Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may result in death or serious injury.

Before driving

  • make sure that the glass hatch is fully closed. If the glass hatch is not fully closed, it may open unexpectedly while driving and hit near-by objects or luggage in the luggage compartment may be thrown out, causing an accident.
  • Do not allow a child to open or close the glass hatch.

    Doing so may cause the glass hatch to move unexpectedly, or cause the child's hands, head, or neck to be caught by the closing glass hatch.

Operating the glass hatch

Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may cause parts of the body to be caught, resulting in death or serious injury.

  • Remove any heavy loads, such as snow and ice, from the glass hatch before opening it. Failure to do so may cause the glass hatch to suddenly shut again after it is opened.
  • When opening or closing the glass hatch, thoroughly check to make sure the surrounding area is safe.
  • If anyone is in the vicinity, make sure they are safe and let them know that the glass hatch is about to open or close.
  • Use caution when opening or closing the glass hatch in windy weather as it may move abruptly in strong wind.
  • The glass hatch may suddenly shut if it is not opened fully. It is more difficult to open or close the glass hatch on an incline than on a level surface, so beware of the glass hatch unexpectedly open or close by itself. Make sure that the glass hatch is fully open and secure before using the luggage compartment.

    Also pay attention to your personal belongings such as bags and ties.


  • When closing the glass hatch, take extra care to prevent your fingers etc.

    From being caught. Also pay attention to your personal belongings such as bags and ties.

  • When closing the glass hatch, make sure to press it lightly on its outer surface.


  • Do not pull on the glass hatch damper stay to close the glass hatch, and do not hang on the glass hatch damper stay.

    Doing so may cause hands to be caught or the glass hatch damper stay to break, causing an accident.

  • Do not attach any accessories other than genuine toyota parts to the glass hatch. Such additional weight on the glass hatch may cause the glass hatch to suddenly shut again after it is opened, resulting in death or serious injury.
  • Do not open the glass hatch while the rear wiper is switched on. (If the rear wiper is switched on while the glass hatch is open, the wiper motor drive disc will be rotating on the door panel.)
  • Do not insert any object in the wiper motor drive disc.


  • Do not close the glass hatch while the rear wiper is switched on. The rear wiper arm may be restarted suddenly after closing the glass hatch.
