Early window cranks compatibility


kris

Recommended Posts

I have a 1970 but it came to me as a shell.  I have lifted a lot of parts, small bits etc from my 1973 parts car.  I'm wondering if I can use the early chrome window cranks - part 51326646115 - with a window regulator(s) from a later car?  As it stands, the car has the window regulators from my 73, but I would like to back date the cranks to match the chrome-only door pulls I have.

 

Thanks

AFAIK all the 2002s used the same window lift mechanism, and thus the window cranks have the same spline spacing and screw hole in the middle to fasten to the lift mechanism.  

 

The cranks from your 70 and your 73 should be the same, as those on my '69 and my '73 are the same.  The inside door handles are different, though.  The '69 has all plastic, black ones, while the later cars have a chrome handle with a soft black plastic insert.

Mike, thanks. I think I am thinking of the 1600 cranks. I've seen some pictures in 1600's of a different style of crank to go along with the metal-only inside door handles. The crank has a smaller round "handle" on the end. Here is a so-so pic.

Any issue with using these 1600 cranks in an 02?

    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
