    disco2.PNG I was going though some old photos last night of my time living in Darwin and come across these. My window wound down in the wet season one day and refused to wind up so I had to fix it immediately . This is what I come up with and it never missed a beat . I already had the countersunk headed bolt and looked in my wallet for the other bit.

    Nice! That's called "Thinkin' outside the box" and would have been much cheaper than getting the right part to boot.

    I was almost going to do the other one too but it would have cost me double .

    great fix! i need to do mine on rear drivers side. bought a brass roller from bunnings which should fit. cost me 7 times what yours cost you though. :mad:
    PS, you recon it could be fixed in situ without pulling the whole scissor mechanism out? seems like a lot of work for such a small piddly bit
