I am putting the windows in the doors of a coupe with the notch style window lift. I did not take it apart and believe there was an anti rattler spring somewhere in the pull rod attachment to the metal channel at the window bottom. I have the metal channel, notched trim and lift rod, but no spring. Anyone have a picture of this or know if this needs a spring and where it goes.
This is out of a door from a 1922 Coupe. Is this the spring you're asking about?
Here is another picture of the window lift from a Coupe. The spring is more of an assist window lift and the small brass roller on the end should be free to turn on the post as it slides along the metal bottom.
There should be two small wood blocks with a rubber bumper at the bottom of the door for the window to rest on. I don't have a good picture of them but if you look closely at the picture you can see them in the bottom of the door mounted on each side.
Thanks Perry, that is one of the springs I need, so that gives me a good idea of size and strength needed. I was wondering if there was any sort of spring loading on the vertical lifting rod to keep it engaged in the notches. The ford parts book mentions an anti rattler spring, maybe the one that is on that helper arm is what they mean
Is this the one you are seeking?
Don, that's the guy for the anti Rattler.
Well I'm missing those springs too! So I guess it's time to take apart my window and add them. They weren't in there when I redid my car and never gave it a thought. Thanks for the additional information.
These parts might help:
Thanks Bill, somehow I missed those when looking in my Lang's catalog
