Well, SOMEONE gets up early...

Thanks Svxcess, now that I know where It goes, I'll check the ones in my doors. One of those was in the glovebox when I bought my SVX, but my windows seem to work fine so I never looked into it.

Re: Sleeve Lock Regulator Replacement with PHOTOS

This part shows up as no longer available (NLA) on most sites. Its a perfect candidate for 3D printing - small and made out of plastic.

As soon as my baby gets a little older, I want to dive into creating parts for the SVX on a printer and making them available for download for free. Hopefully by then there will be more viable and cheaper options for 3D scanners.

Re: Sleeve Lock Regulator Replacement with PHOTOS

That would be fantastic. As long as the material is a strong as the nylon original part to handle whatever stresses there are.

This is a part that could take many SVX's off the road if it could not be replaced. Every sale that needed a safety inspection to be registered would fail if the primary windows did not operate.

Exclamation Re: Sleeve Lock Regulator Replacement SOURCE


UPDATE

Just to let you know, the sleeve lock regulator used on the rear windows is the identical one to the front. Though used, the yprobably are stronger, since the rear windows get far less usage over time and the strain on the regulator is far less since the window is smaller and lighter in weight. As long as you're going to a pick n' pull, might check this location for spares.

Good info. One more thing to remove from my parts car before it goes to the scrap yard this summer.

Re: Sleeve Lock Regulator Replacement with PHOTOS

If anybody has a broken or damaged one (or a good one), I would be up for modeling it and printing it to see if this would work. Once we have the model, we can order from online services which can printer them in strong materials than we generally have access to as home/hobby makers.

Alternatively, if somebody wanted to measure the heck out of and send me the measurements, I could try and model/print one that way.

Cheers,
Ian

Re: Sleeve Lock Regulator Replacement with PHOTOS

I just replaced mine. Unfortunately, that wasn't the problem so, I now have a dirty but unbroken one available for loan.
