No problem, Franz.
Would you mind posting a pic of it?dirtylawnchairParticipantJanuary 30, 2020 at 1:20 pmPost count: 62YberParticipantJanuary 30, 2020 at 3:10 pmPost count: 157
I bought it a few years back when someone recommended it to me – and I can’t remember where I got it.
You might try printing off the pic and trying the parts dept at a Saab dealership…
Good luck.FranzModeratorJanuary 31, 2020 at 9:29 amPost count: 5111

Hey Franz – I’m assembling the front doors on my bus and came across a couple of questions.
I’ve looked and looked and don’t see a slit in the WW weatherstrip for the vent wing that the upper tab (that gets the rivet) to go through. I don’t want to go cutting on it until I’m sure – do I need to make an opening for the tab myself or am I missing something?
Also – what tool do you use to crimp the upper rivet that serves as the pivot? Do you know where I can get one?
Thanks, man!FranzModeratorFebruary 3, 2020 at 11:33 amPost count: 5111
Yeah you have to cut the slit. sometimes there is a outline of where it should be.
I use an air hammer and the corner of a steel work bench to smash the rivets. Center punch, then flat.
The manual show a vicegrip like tool. I have some that I modified.John JonesModeratorFebruary 4, 2020 at 9:18 amPost count: 10418
Door window frame assembly sucks…

Franz – Sean at WW sent a pic of vice grip with a ball bearing on the bottom jaw. Clever. Sounds like your modified vice grip might be the same.
Any advice about how to deal with the rivets that hold the latch to the vent wing frame?

Right on John – window frame assembly is a bitch.YberParticipantFebruary 5, 2020 at 10:05 amPost count: 157
Any tips on how to get the vent wing glass and seal in the goddamn frame??
The manual shows a special jig to push it in. How do you guys manage it??FranzModeratorFebruary 5, 2020 at 12:40 pmPost count: 5111
Wrap the rubber around the glass, then lube with silicone spray or wd40. Set frame on something that won’t scratch it. Then use a big dead-blow hammer on the glass edge to drive it into the frame…Its a rocking motion you have to start the corner nearest the vent wing latch first.
Don’t worry the tempered glass is strong.PeteParticipantFebruary 5, 2020 at 12:48 pmPost count: 1102
