Has anyone had to pull one of these apart ? My front window has a decided slope to one side. When open, the LH (non winder side) lift arm is quite sloppy on the winder box end.

I am wondering what sort of fitting secures the lift arm at the winder box end - a rivet or some suck like the window end - or whatever. Or maybe it is a throw away - any suggestions?

Many thanks

Hi John

You can repace the winder available aany caravan camac supplier - the box is not fixable if it is broken inside but you can check this by removing the box - see the bible I'm sure its in there.

If not caravansplus have details on their site.

Hi John,

Broke a pair on the way to Alice Springs. (Forgot to lock down a window then drove into a 80kph headwind.) While waiting for a replacement to come into stock, I decided to pull one apart. Not possible as the assembly is held together with a bunch of (I think M5) screws that have break-off heads that finish flush after original assembly.
Simple job to replace with new winder assemblies. I paid $35 each in Alice.
Make sure when ordering that you specify either left or right hand assemblies

Thanks for that guys... just the info I was looking for. I have a habit of pulling things apart that are not fixable.

John, You can take the winder out of the box it is in and swap it to the other side. Sharp pull is usually enough to get it out & then remove the plug from the opposite side & pop it back in . regards, Graham
