Power window limiter / stops

Post by Tony »

Looked on PET and cant seem to find a reference to this. Two on each window and basically limit the upper and lower limit of travel on the window mechanism. They are plastic blocks that sit inside a part that bolts to the window drive.

mine are in shambles.

i have an idea how to fab up my own. I have some very hard rubber jacking pads that came with my quickjack...i could sacrifice part of the extra one i have.


are these parts available though.???


also, i found that the retaining bolt on this to be loose on both windows. This will cause the window to go beyond a normal limit and cause the door frame to flex. I saw someone make reference to that issue recently...cant recall what thread. But, this is most likely the problem causing it.

I've never had to order one so I have no clue if they are available. Should be fairly simple to come up with something though.

After trying in vain to fab some out of rubber, I replaced my disintegrated rubber stop pieces with some hardwood, cut to size. It was easier to make a good fit.
It's been about 8 years and working fine so far.

Made my own out of some hard rubber. Basically a slice from an extra jack pad i had on my quickjack

Should work fine. It just prevents the metal arm hitting a solid metal stop.
