French term or phrase:vitre de gousset
I've never come across these before. I don't think they are quaterlights as has been used previously. There's a reference (in English) to "cheater windows" a bit later but I have no idea what they are either!
I think I've come to the conclusion that the <> refers to the rear quarterlight and the <> to the front quarterlight. I've found a picture (it's a bizarre on-line thing I'm translating) and there is indeed a rhomboid-shaped front quarterlight. There are no funny little windows under the windscreen.
Explanation: Seen this in literature about Peugeot and other car models:
