Plus 2 - electric window guides/channels

PostPost by: jono » Tue Dec 06, 2022 10:46 am

I wonder if anyone has some spare channels looking for a home?

These are the metal channels/slides that bolt to the bottom of the glass and accept the drive arm.

A pair would be great or at a push just the UK driver side - this one has taken a hit from rust which has rotted out a section. I could probably repair with TIG but a replacement channel would be better.

Cheers

Jono,
Only just seen this. I have an old pair of windows with some on, if I can find them. I'll check how good the steel work is tomorrow and PM you.
Cheers
John.

Hey John, that would be great thanks!

It's only the drivers side - other side is perfect. This car sat for years outside and water clearly ran onto this one but not the other. I've never known them to be rust prone so fingers crossed yours are good!

Cheers
