Quarter window lock knob


Recommended Posts

That appears to be from a squarelight car.  There are actually three different rear quarter window locking mechanisms used on 2002s:  all chrome ones (including the knob) used up to VIN 2587400, then chrome latches with a black knob, used on the remainder of Roundies and at least some early squarelights, then an all-black one (brackets and knobs) like yours. I'm sure a search on the FAQ parts for sale, plus a post in the parts wanted section should turn one up.  

 

Presuming you have the other half of the hinge that's attached to the body, what you need is a carriage bolt whose square shank will fit (or can be made to fit) in that square opening on the lower flange of your hinge.  Then find a wing nut with the same threads as the carriage bolt and at least you can latch the window closed without a zip tie.  That'll keep you going until you find the proper part.

Thanks for the tip. Yes the other part is still attached. I'll try to find a carriage bolt that fits until I find the correct replacement part.

My car is in for paint hence why the windows are removed.

    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
