Calling on the GM bus nuts
« on: February 19, 2014, 08:37:35 AM »
So I need quick advice from someone who knows gm pd-4106's. Is this front drivers window original? I have looked at so many videos online of pd-4106's and have seen the window with the small toll window but only a few like this. (split window) Both windows pivot out and the seals are so bad I didn't dare do it with the front window. If its not an original then I am considering just swapping out with the window from Motion windows. Any advice on the replacement seals Thanks for the help

it is original.  i think fast fred hunted for one for years before he found one.  He might have the rubber to fix it.  He says it is the best air conditioner there is.

Thanks Utah and I just got off the phone with Luke, no luck there. Will keep looking. I tried looking up Fast Fred but I can't find that user.

that is the original windows and I just removed mine and put in one from Motion Industries that a friend had for me.   Mine leaked for the 10 years I had it and even shorted the electrial one night and started the bus and continued cranking the engine until the starter burned up.   Generator wouldn't cut the starter out until the engine was reved up a little.   Anyone want the old window can have it, near Lansing, Michigan.

Baker,  is it possible for me to pay you to ship the Window 2 me. All the glass in mine except the curved is cracked and very cloudy.
