Replacement rear windows. Now Complete!!!

Recommended Posts

Well I've bitten the bullet and ordered a pair of fixed rear windows for the old girl.

Auto moulds and rubbers do a complete kit to change out the dreaded sliding ones,and you have to choice of fixed or sliding.

I opted for the fixed as I'll be shelving the rear out for camping so it's less options for grubby fingers to get into the car..

So yea, $350 delivered ain't bad IMO and there on there way..

More details here. (it's the only detailed thread I can find)

Well bugga me.. I got prezzies this morning... After ordering Thursday there in my hot little hands..

Comunication with Matt from Auto Moulds was exellent, and he even installed the rubbers on the glass for me..

I came very well packed with lots of bubble wrap, would easily surzive a plane drop.. :P

Well i wasnt expecting them untill next weekend so the install will have to wait.

Well there in and I'm stocked.. Very clean and very easy to do. But you need 2 people..

Used a 5mm rope and fed it around inside the rubber were the lip will eventually end up. Allow a good 30cm overlap and have the tails to the inside.

Next was to pull the old ones out. Another easy job. The inside rubber is simply peeled away and push the frame out.. Make sure you have some one to catch..

Next we simply placed the window in position and while the outside person applies light inwards pressure you pull the rope out and the rubber will simply roll over the body lip..

Use plenty of soapy water. The corners are a little tougher and a screwdriver is handy to aid the rope.

All in all 45mins and there in..

Hi,  I am new to the forum.  Congrats on the install and the finished product looks good.

 

As an owner of 2 GQ and 1 GU Nissan Patrol wagons, this thread has helped me source a supplier that will help me keep my GQ looking good and rust free.

 

I will be replacing the side windows in the GQ with the Sliding windows as they are just showing signs of rust in a couple of spots under the rubber seals.  I think I'll replace them with the full glass option.

 

Cheers

Welcome mate and glad to be a help. The company I got these from also do the split/ sliding options but use an alloy frame so they'll last for ever. A bit more expensive than the fixed ones but if you want to open them for access then a great option Kallen Westbrook Owner of Westy's Accessories

Hi robbo. The company is still up and running, but only threw eBay..

So if you search there you will find em..

Very simple to install.. 2 person job though. A bit fiddly around the corners but patients and a small flat screw driver and all will go good..

Any questions just sing out mate
