Sliding door search

Post by Solomanga » Fri Feb 02, 2018 11:12 am

Hi,

New member, new owner . . .

I've just got my hands on a LHD 67 Kombi with a sliding cargo door.

I'm looking for repair panels etc but can't find anything for the door.

The M code (169) refers to a sliding door but nowhere caters for parts.

Was the sliding door borrowed from the forthcoming Bay?

Cheers!

Sol.

It was available as an option for a number of years prior to the introduction of the Bay window.
I have a NOS central lock mechanism available (different from the Bay mechanisms) should you require one.

You will be lucky to find any spares at all for sliding door split screens, they are rarer than sambas.
There was someone on eBay selling a nos door hinge but it was £500 just for the hinge!

There is a sliding door with windows cut out (panel van) for sale in Holland.
I think the bottom is a bit rusty but still looks in ok condition.
Interested in 1/4 light/sliding window locks? Please PM me.
Available colours: black, blue, red, yellow, white, grey, green and purple

You can get panels for the sliding door (skin and sill sections) from Ahschofields, I had a 66 slider.

As said the mechanism is a split only part
