    Default window crank issue-1960

    it appears the knob on the regulator that fits inside the crank handle has worn down and does not allow the crank to grab it...anyone have a fix?

    A rebuild service may be your best choice like what Paragon offers. I looked at a few sources but didn't find that part seperate.

    I'm looking for a way to restore traction between the handle and the worn stub on the regulator...any ingenious thoughts anybody?

    I'm supprised that the handle (crank) didn't wear first. Did someone have vice-grips on it ? Try cleaning it up with a small file and then useing another handle, or switch handles on the drivers and passenger doors and see what happens.

    I have tried several handles, and it's the same...the regulator part is pretty worn..possibly vice grips.

    Do you think some kind of "shim" put into the handle might work?

    I drilled a small hole in the handle and inserted a small allen wrench screw in it, but it doesn't hold...

    If I had the regulator here I could repair it. The spline is just an old Chevy window and door handle spline. Maybe you can grind a flat on it and then epoxy a piece into the handle to take up the flat area. It's kinda Bubba but....... I would just fix it right and have it done with.
