Talking Projects for the Weekend

I have had this annoying rattle coming from my rear sliding windows for some time now. I have had the parts to fix it but lacked the desire or will power to dive into what turned out to be a really simple project. I replaced the upper and lower tracks in the sliding windows in about an hour and a half. The lower piece is a hard plastic track and the upper is a rubber seal that goes around to the front of where the glass comes to a rest. Having delt with glass and rubber seals before I came prepared with a can of silicone spray.

I am also diving in mounting my ARB switches in the center of the dash by the rear wiper switch. I have had the lockers for some time but have simply pulled the switches out of the passenger seat compartment when I needed them. I am trying to decide how to run the wires from this compartment to the dash area. I might just use my unibit and drill through the lower part of the box and hide the wires under whats left of my carpet.

You're going to have another fun weekend project as soon as you want to tackle it!

AC is out, along with the compressor, condensor, drier, wires and hoses. Went super smooth, even though it was -12 this morning. I pulled it into the shop, and everything became incrusted in frost. I'll be cleaning it up tomorrow and getting it packed. PM me and let me know where it's going.

Hey Tim-

I've got the same thing going on with the 110. Where'd you get your parts? Got P/Ns and cost? Thanks!

I have the same issue with my driver side sliding window in the rear. I would also appreciate part number, cost and location you got the parts to fix the window rattle.

I got the parts from Rovers North.

"Filler Strip Window Seal" P/N MUC3768 $10.44 PER SIDE (top seal)
"Runner BTTM Slide Window" P/N MWC7612 $20.38 PER SIDE

The bottom runner is a hard plastic. It just pulls right out under the window. The top is originally a felt type strip that comes out fairly easily as well. I would reccomend putting the top "filler strip in first when you do it. I had to use a lot of silicone and it was kind of a pain but got it done. The new filler strip is rubber. Like I said the whole install took about an hour and a half and makes driving much more pleasureable. That rattle was driving me crazy.
