Re: push out van windows

i found some rear window louvers...and apparently there are part numbers for both fixed and hinged rear windows.

willpak manufacturer page for van louvers...
http://www.willpak.com/products/rear-window-louvers/

at bottom of that page there is a link to a .pdf
http://0037a4b.netsolhost.com/wp-con...VanLouvers.pdf

truck n vans sells them here
http://www.trucknvans.com/Van-Louvers-s/1793.htm

as for the hinged windows themselves...i found this page. if you click on the drawings, they will bring you to other pages that show the various rear window assemblies and part numbers with descriptions. i can see that there are definitely parts for 2003 express. google came up with this result after a couple of pages so it was pretty buried. i dont recall the exact search terms i used but it was like my 6th or 7th combination lol.
http://parts.nalleygmc.com/products/.../15982180.html

hopefully i can piece something together to get hinged rear windows and maybe even put louvers on em. i like the louver look.


hope the info helps

I don't think anyone at the factory is thinking that far ahead.
My '08 has a pop out on the 60/ door, right where the door lock is, but not in the 40/!

Re: push out van windows

Saabman,
I like your thinking. Will look at them later today in my e350 to see if I can get them
to open wider.

Jage, do you think the hardware could be retrofit to your existing window? On my '08, the mounting holes for the fixed windows are on the sides whereas the opening hardware is on the top & bottom, so you'd have to drill new holes. May be worth a shot though.

Drill new holes and have old ones. The popouts are also on a frame, not sure how the regular windows go in. I'll take photos if I think about it.

Re: push out van windows

My 1995 E150 cargo van had the pop-out windows stock from Ford. Can't comment on the side doors as I had a slider.

A junkyard here has a conversion van ~1994 with a pair of intact pop-out rear windows. Assuming I can figure out how to get the rear door panels/trim off to reveal the naked door, what tools will I need to remove the windows, frames and latches?

Thanks!

Re: push out van windows

Greydawg,
My 95 takes a Phillips for some of
the plastic trim and the bottom latch. The top hinges look like a 10mm.

Right, then: a collection of screwdrivers and my set of sockets. Sounds good as I want to minimize the number of tools I have to lug out to the back rows of the junk yard!
