  • Lekkie windows

    Hi,

    I have a 67 coupe that came with a lekkie window conversion.

    They go down really smoothly now I have had them out and cleaned them but they still do not have the beans to put the window back up.

    Anyone else got this problem? is it a voltage thing or are they just knackered?

    Thanks

    My advice... Chuck em in the trash

    Put back to stock, much easier.

        I am not familiar specifically with the aftermarket regs, but you could try silicon spray on seals /glass edge and that rail on regultor are greased to reduce friction---FYI I am a development engineer for window regs with 20 yrs on arm type regulators. Motors should usually have a lifting force of 200 - 300N (glass load /friction would normally be < 100N.

          Issue is I have no weather stripping in or internal stripping.

          Its literally just the glass and it still does not come up.

          Anyone know where I could get a normal wind mechanism?

          Thanks.

            We've just fitted an electric window kit into a 66 Fastback. they run super smooth up and down. I'd suggest your runners need aligning correctly which will cause less friction. I'll post a video up if I manage to remember lol.

              No idea what your motor looks like but maybe you could strip it and lubricate its inner workings? That's what I did on my Focus and fixed the problem, give it a go as you have nothing to lose.

                  Cheers guys. Everything has been out and renewed amd greased and its a bit better but not great. Think its just the motors are xxxxxxed. Rather go back to manual tbh. Will have another play aligning fore and aft and then the angle. Answer maybe new motors and regs.

                    If you go back to manual try and get originals.

                    I bought repro mechanisms for my 67 and they were seemingly made of such soft metal the threads stripped almost immediately.

                    Ended up having to use parts from the repro units to repair my originals but even then a couple of years ago they gave way so bought some originals from US breaker and have been good since!

                      It sounds as if the motors could have gone a little weak. Before looking for complete window regs search the net for the motors you may be able to replace them quite cheaply. Also it might be possible to fit slightly stronger motors.
