986 Window mechanism is damaged

Recommended Posts

I live in Australia, so my right door window is the most used.

Recently I have had a couple of squeaks, then went away. Not for long. After the roof goes down, I tried to get the window up again. It travelled about half way, then gets stuck. and would not move under power, up or down.

So I removed all of the door trim, and still the window was stuck fast.

So, removed the mechanism. Found one plastic wheel had worn of its mount, and another one cracked.

Can I repair this mechanism? or is it a new part.?

I have remounted the wheel that came off, tapped a 4mm screw and washer, is Ok. But the broken one, I do not know where to go with this one, any help appreciated.

I have attached some photos

Photo 01: this is the repaired wheel.

Photo 02: this is what the wheel should look like

Photo 03 The wire appears to be short, and I cannot get any more length, this I need help.

Photo 04: This is the broken wheel. I do not think I can repair this wheel.


Regards, David

Many thanks for your quick responses. Ok, I see that a replacement is needed. I will check out Woody's Parts LLC. I have a friend in Houston, who can ship to Australia. (Parts in Australia are prohibitively expensive, even some second hand stuff), regards
