    Default Help needed with BARNIE R8 restoration

    Hi Guys.
    The most annoying part of restoration work is when you finally get the piece you want (Drivers door) in this case and the window winder has stripped it's 5 tooth gear inside the winder mechanism !!!

    Is it possible that some nice person out there just might have the piece or is willing to chop up an old winder mechanism to get the bit out I need.

    There you go Phil, this one is from a 1950s Renault Fregate which will undoubtedly give Barnie some more street cred. I am assuming they are the same design but have attached images in case, there's plenty of life left in this bit. One thing is for sure, Renault were very economical with the R&D back in the old days and used many of the same parts across many different models, across many decades.

    if this is the one, I'll have it in the post tomoz.

    Yes, why indeed would you spend money designing and making two window winder mechanisms if strength and gearing were OK for several models?

    That's it my friend. Identical to my broken one. The tang has broken off mine and I couldn't locate it for love nor money.
    Thanks again. Early postage will help me move forward.
    Best regards
    Phil

    If it’s off a fregate it will have more torque but less power, so your window will wind slower.

    You're a good man Mr. 59 Floride.
    Another good example of the A/F family keeping the dreams alive.
