WTB Window Regulator Springs

Please do, and report back. I was lucky that when I had 4 regulators cleaned and plated that I at least had 2 good springs. I'm looking to buy 2 more springs so I have fully working backup regulators, but since they are only backups, it isn't on the top of my list.

Hey Karl,

 

Here's what I found regarding the Chevy window spring: it is thicker and taller in profile than the '02 one and the "catch-hook" stands too far away from where it needs to line up on the regulator body. I suppose one could cut and bend but...In my searching I did see that some similarly aged Mercedes & Porsches, including the 356, appear to have similar springs but they're like $50 apiece...here are a couple of photos for comparison, the Chevy one is too thick to even slot into the post.

Oh, bummer. It's so difficult to tell from the pics on eBay and Amazon. I hope you are able to return those. I made the same mistake when trying to find the cylindrical spring behind the door panel for the door handle. The GM springs looked right, but when they arrived they were way too big. I was able to return them.

    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
