Black Square on Lift Gate?!

Hey Everyone!

My husband and I just bought our brand new 2013 Jeep Compass about 3-weeks ago, and so far we absolutely love it.

I just noticed today when I opened the lift gate that there seems to be a little tiny black exposed square on the very top!

I've looked through the owners manual, as well as googled online and I cannot figure out what this thing is!

Does anyone know what this is and what it does?

Thanks in advance

Hey Danica, first of all, Welcome!!
That is the washer (I forgot the name of the part) for the tailgate window. If you twist the lever for the back window wiper until the click, it turns the wiper ON, if you twist it a little more then you have the washer

I hope I could help
