Rear windows


Hi there my rear windows on my 2.8td 89 lwb fourtrak that I recently bought apparantly have not been open in years cos an old farmer had it before. we have only tried to open one but couldnt get it shut again properly because the runners are in a terribe rusty state. I am afraid to open them in case I cant get them shut again or we totally knacker the runners. Any ideas how to sort them out?

If there not totaly rotted aw

If there not totaly rotted away (which I'm afaid they probably are, as it's a common problem), then the only answere is a lot of cleaning up with wire wool, and a large dose of silicon based grease (as oil based grease will knacker any window rubbers you have left in no time).

Any veiws expresed in this thread by me are purely from my own experience, and (sometimes) falible memory. Hope my comments help, but please don't take them as gospel.
