Window Bracket: Is this piece necessary?!?


Recommended Posts

Hey all... long time no post.

Put some replacement doors on the '72 for paint job. As I'm building them back up, I found that I am missing a piece from the guide. On the picture below, it is #2. I don't see a part number in realOEM. The window worked fine before without it... what is it's purpose?

glass can more easily get cocked in its channel and not want to roll up smoothly. It'll work without the piece, as you've discovered, but will work better if you have it. I don't think the factory would have included it if it wasn't necessary!

Perhaps someone has a derelict door with the part you need...

Look under the Parts For Sale section on this board. There have been a couple of cars being parted-out recently and they may have that piece that rides in track. As mentioned above, you do want to get that piece installed in order for the window to go up and down as originally intended.

Before replacing the door card/vinyl use some Wurth HHS-K spray synthetic lubricating oil in the window track, both front and rear.

The Wurth lubricant is available here:

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
