rear side window shades

I am trying to figure out how to get the rear window shade...is it bundled into the side shades? is it power for the rear window? the description for the side windows shows the rear in the pic but no mention of it.

This is on a 340 btw.

Yes the side shades are bundled with the power rear shade option.

Just wanted to say something about the shades since I have them. The rear window shades are pretty cheap components and really do very little. They are a plastic screen that has to manually be pulled over and hooked on a hook on the window. And my son pulled on the hook and it even popped off...it's really cheap! I thought they would be cool for my 6 year old son and I have a tint on the windows but I have yet to barely use them. The back window is electronic but is more like a " watch this thing come up" type of thing. I don't know how much that option is now, but it really is fairly ineffective.

I have them and like them. They were are $575 option in 2012. I just warned my then 4 yr old daughter to never touch them. Luckily she's listened up to today.

Thanks for the info. We do a lot of road trips and usually one of us ends up working a bit while the other drives. The shades would greatly reduce glare on the laptop screens.

You are still going to want some window tint, in addition to the shades.

Yeah figured I would need to tint them. Thanks for feedback. Good to know I was on the right track.
