Default Re: 05 t1n 316cdi side windows

Hi owner,
glad to be of help, something to be aware of ;its important to get very accurate measurement of the actual hole size the window fits into, also there is a slight curve that runs vertically down the van side so a 7mm spacer needs to be placed under the top and bottom flanges of the new window (check your own van with a strait edge in case its different) if you don't do this you will break the window when you pop rivet the window into the van, it is sealed with silecon, you will need 3.2dia x 12.7long pop rivets to get through the spacers. I found getting the old windows out to be the hardest part of the job, make yourself 3or4 trim sticks and wedges out of wood then you won;t damage the paintwork,screwdrivers are a no/no. if youneed any more info just email me at cootsclub@bigpond.com
regards ben
