1973 Window regulator roller
#1
I took my door panel off today on the passenger side to see why my window crashed to the bottom of the door. It appears that there is no plastic roller on the regulator where it goes into the channel hooked up to the window.

Is there a replacement roller I can put on there, or do I have to press the old one out of the regulator and put a whole new one in there?

I hope there's something quick I can do and don't have to remove the whole mechanism.

Thanks,

Joe

Mine did that several years ago. IIRC, I just unbolted the old and replaced it.

http://www.finddormanhelp.com/# 74402 is part number. I believe it will work. It is a slide not a roller but functions the same. Chuck

Chuck,

Thanks a ton! I'll pick one of those up tonight and see if it works.

I guess I just pop the plastic piece onto the nub I have left on my regulator?

Joe, It's been along time but it seems like the 72-73 are riveted and 71s are bolted in. I may have that backwards. Don at OMS would know for sure. Chuck

Mine is riveted in there, I know that.

I'm hoping I can pop that plastic "roller" on there rather than drilling out the whole thing....

Worst case, I have to take out the regulator and put a new one in.

The rollers in the NPD catalog (#23240-1AK) are held on with a haripin clip, and this is consistent with what is shown in the repair manual.

That's the "help" brand piece I used on mine. I can't remember.. I might have just snapped the new one onto the stud. Either way, it works.
