Window Scratches


Adz2332

Recommended Posts

Hey,

Well my drivers side door window has long scratches running the full length of the window (up and down, from top to bottom). they are just about dead cntre of the window. The power window still works fine, it doesnt appear to be struggling or anything. and it doesnt make a noise so i cant tell if anything is rubbing on it. but from the amount of scratches it appears its been doing it for some time. The passenger side has no scratches. Has this happened to anyone else? How did u fix it? does anyone have any idea what could be causing it? or how to stop it?

thanks.

there are little pads that guide the window. after a while the felt cover wears off and the metal underneath scratches the window. the reason it's usually worse on the drivers side is because the drivers side get's more use. really the only way to fix it is to buy a new window, and replace the little pads with new ones.

I've bought the parts and i'm installing over the Christmas break

Their not cheap...especially for what you get...OEM Nissan Parts, no suprise their expensive. Do both windows as it will save you the expense of the extra window purchase down the road.

Be advised all these were for my 32R

For the pair and thats one side...$129.00 ex Japan wait about a week. You would gag if i posted the pix, these things are nothing, I did a double take and had the parts cat check...sure enough...bang 129 bucks, damn OEM. But its cheaper than the window i bought and will be cheaper than waiting till the passenger ones scratched to buggery and needs replacing. :)

spot on... But you can loosen the current ones to prevent any further scratching..

Anyone know the part number for the R33 Parts? (the little felt pads)

Would like to fix this and retint my windows

Can we just get glass from the windscreen obriens or something?! If so I'm going to do this too. Noticed scratches on a few R34 GT-R's as well. BAD DESIGN NISSAN!

Wouldnt think so...curved, tempered etc. But hey, I could be wrong...I never checked.

Second handies can be found.

If I can remember to do it in between swearing at the car and enjoying a holiday tipple I will take some pix and do a D.I.Y.

yeah, the windows are fairly complex, i'd doubt obrien or anyone other than nissan would make them. they hahve to have holes in them for all the bolts, guide etc and they are curved and cut in odd shapes.

I'm luck in that I was able to buy a mint passenger window, and a mint drivers window. still haven't put them in, but I will :D

Good work on the part numbers, I'd like to see a pic too. maybe I can re-coat my old ones with something.

These pads not only wear out, but they can get choked with dust so when you wash the car you should run water over them by letting the window down a bit and pushing the window in a little. Gives heaps of space to flush. Make sure the door drains aren't clogged too.

I got some darkish strips down the drivers window which is the early stages of the wearing, but the pads have plenty of felt left on them.

Clark rubber might have something that can be used to replace the pads.

Im actually referring to the inside pads... they are the ones causing the scratching.. And ive got no idea if they are able to be replaced or not..

Yes. There are sets for the inner surface and the outer surface. If dust gets into the door both are exposed. They can be replaced but there will be some work to it, such as glass removal but not too serious.

    • Done few measures to work out how I'm going to fit the Thermotec Exhaust Jackets to my headers, the kit comes with 8 steel zip ties and 80 clips, enough sleeve to cover each primary 600mm(24"), thus having a clip every 75mm. I test fit one of the primaries, the sleeve covers my 1 7/8 primaries well, and when the clips are on (I didnt use the clips, I used some small stationary fold back clips), there isn't any gaps which is nice. Looks the goods so far. Just need time to do final fit up, and then take it for the typical "smokey drive" until the sleeves "cook off" the manufacturing residue like the normal heat wrap smoke show. The hard part is covering the No1 primary on the 4:1 headers that obviously is bolted to the car and ducks behind the other primaries, I assume I'll be laying on my back playing "elastic man" with my arms Also purchased a few electrical glands to run the RaceTCS wiring thru my firewall as I cannot see a neat and easy way to jam the cables through any existing "holes", 3 x 16mm glands to suit 5-10mm cable, the CAT6 cable is 5.5mm and the 2 ten cores are just on 9.5mm, tight enough to keep the moisture and engine bay fumes out. They will hopefully fit on the firewall on the passenger side without to much fuss, I've had a quick look, but there will be alot more looking before the 16mm holesaw gets to to play. I'm still waiting on a rough quote from Autotech for the actual termination into the PCM and ABS modules, whilst the actual job isn't rocket science I would prefer to "pay cash" to someone with more wiring skills and proper tools for the job than me. My wiring skills stop at buying the wiring, the Deutsch connectors, drilling the holes in the firewall, and fitting the glands, any more could result in fire, or possibly bay windows in the block. Why am I drill holes, I need to feed in 1 x CAT6 from the ABS module into the cabin, and 2 x 10 core, 1 x 10 core of 8 injector out, and 2 earths, and 1 for 8 injector  in for the injector interceptor wiring and a power. I will be heading into Autotech to get approval for my cunning plan. So many coloured wires and tapping into to ABS and PCM makes Mark's head hurt......... I pay cash now..
    • https://www.jdmgarage.com.au/shop/engine/engine-accessories/oil-caps/genuine-r32-gtr-oil-cap-15255-d5501/ That says non neo rb25, I just though maybe it didn't clear the plastic cover or something 
    • Now with a fresh alignment, a lot less toe in at the rear now as it's no longer needed (subframe offset by 10mm upwards). Front toe touched up and I think I'm some what ready for All Jap Day, which might end up being cancelled due to the rain.
    • 4D table allows you to say have the slider at 0%, 25%, 60%, 80% ethanol as an example, giving you multiple maps if you will. Also removes the need to do arithmetic when you're tuning, no need to go ahh I need to add 11 to my base table cell of 8 to give me 19. I "think" it makes tuning a bit easier, however still yields exactly the same results as using the conventional compensation tables as you and I are both well versed on.
    • We're setting the backlash. "Shouldn't" need to change it as the same front centre, crown wheel and pinion are going back in that came out of it but we will see.
