Yes the rear window opens independently of the rear hatch, you have to click the trunk pop button on your keyless entry remote. Can't help you on the garage door opener.. Have you tried Googling it?

if you look on the right side of the rear license plate, up under the lip of the overhang, there is a rubber coated button which will just open the back window without the whole door going up. It DOES have to be in an unlocked position though!

You are wrong, i own a 2013 Limited explorer and neither of these options are on my vehicle. The remote option only opens the whole liftgate and the same goes for the rubber button that you speak of

I have 2012 and it has it. I need it for hauling. Looks like they discontinued the feature. Anybody know a 2014 vehicle that does this?

I'm also hunting for SUV with independent rear window from tailgate. Driving 1996 explorer. Need new one

Ha ha Martin, I've had mine 3 years and just googled thIs. Can't wait to try it, really needed it on this trip but as long as it works, now. As good as anytime.

I have a 2016 Explorer. The rear window opened while driving setting off warning signals on the instrument panel. Had to stop on the Interstate and close the window. Problem is there is no way to open it. No button above the license. Nothing on the remote. Dealer service mgr claims it does not open. I know it does because I closed it.
