    Default Centurion Conv. Coupe -72, quarter glass parts

    Hello!

    My car passenger side quarter glass didn't work well. Two "rubbers" is broken?
    Where I can get the new ones? And what are the parts (two different parts) correct names?

    See pictures....

    I really need help...

    What you probably also need is a new rear quater window roller :

    Jaakko, I copied one of your photos and filled in the names for the parts we are talking about (look down here).
    What you only need new is the one quarter window guide roller.
    The window guides (no rollers - thatīs why I killed my last posting regarding these parts) seem to be okay.
    You can find such a quarter window guide roller on Ebay as I posted earlier.
    You should be able to get the window running as good as it was before with that new roller !

    Good luck again !

    Guess you mean the broken away edge of the right guide. I also have such a guide with a brocken edge at my left rear window and it works good with it. May be itīs still good enough for your window too.

    Where to buy such a quide I donīt know. On the other hand noone here seems to have an idea where to get these parts. So I would dismantle the old part and try to reinstall it turned on its backside which seems to be still okay. May be this helps until you will find an original new guide somewhere sometime.
    Another idea : You could look for a nylon block and buy one to cut out the thing you want. Here is such a nylon block - only I donīt know wheather the dimensions are great enough : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nylon-Cutt...-/260828605571

    Whatever you will do, it will be interesting for me (perhaps for others here too) getting your information about how you did the trick !
