HELP - I don't want to scrap my car just because of a window

Recommended Posts

I was advised to join the owners club in the hopes someone may be able to help me...

I am having no luck at all sourcing a passenger near side rear quarter glass opening window for my 1991 Toyota Corolla -  it has been discontinued and I have tried numerous breakers yards wit no success at all.

·        Also I need the seal and hinge for the window.

The car details are as follows:-

·        TOYOTA Corolla Hatchback 1991

·        Cylinder capacity (cc): 1295 cc

·        Fuel type: PETROL

·        Vehicle colour: GREY

I was wondering if anyone even knows someone that could make one for me?

Any advice would be great

Thank you

Rebecca

Hi Rebecca, how about trying Autoglass, just Google them for contact details. Tell them what you need, they can only say sorry if they can't help, worth a phone call. Mike.

Thank you Mike I did try Autowindscreens who said that the part is discontinued and I need to go round the breakers yards - which has proven fruitless. But many thanks for replying any help is appreciated

Ok, another one for you. Email john.devlin@lindop.toyota.co.uk he is a top parts person for obviously Toyota.

He has told me where to get parts for mine that are no longer stocked.

Alternatively you can phone him on 01978 720074, he's a nice man and easy to chat to, he also has the nickname 'Kingo'. You may get through to a switchboard but just ask for him under either/both of these names, you are welcome to say Mike169 or Metal Mickey gave you his details. Mike.

Oh, I forgot to mention you will need to give him your reg. no. so he can identify your car. Mike.

I had a similar problem after my Renault 5 was vandalised (a long time ago) .  Like your Corolla, it had hinged rear quarter-lights.  However, the base model had fixed glass with a different seal, and I was able to find the fixed glass and seal in a scrap yard.  Just wondering if that's applicable to your Corolla, in which case gives you another option.
