    Default 405 - Lost and Found!

    Hi all,

    Yesterday, upon returning to the car park where I left my 405 Mi16, I found an empty space after work.

    The cops just called me to say they found it in Wollongong, gutted. But no apparent damage, other then a shattered window.

    It's the little window on the rear passenger door.

    Where can I find these, at a wrecker? and is it hard to refit a new one?

    Cheers

    Pip,
    You say gutted? Do you mean stripped out, or that you're gutted it's in Woolloongong?

    Great to see it's returned

    Bugger I thought you were going to say they'd burnt it ... That way you could get your new car

    I'm not so much pissed off about the car anymore.... it's that they ran off with my tool kit in the boot.

    About $4K worth of Snap-On. The car is so unreliable, I carry it around with me.

    They even took my puncture repair kit. This was a really good professional kit too.

    Funny part is. I had this tool box and kit sitting in the back (in plain view) of my 4X4 for about 3 years. And not one attempt at taking it.

    Pips, seems that no-one has answered your original question. The quaterpane may be getting harder to find, because if the door is rusted or dented, wreckers I feel would tend to throw the whole lot. A major one should be able to supply one however.

    I have taken one apart, forget exactly how. There is a small bolt, possibly 8mm, holding it in the top. The upright bar need to come out, and I have forgotten how it is held in at the bottom. The rubber bits fall out, it is difficult to keep togther.

    But, yes it is possible to replace.

    Good grief ... You were carrying expensive Snap On tools with you

    I want to get one of these for my car ... These chinesse junk tools I've found really good.
