    I spotted a pair of vent windows (or whatever they are called) and the wrecking yard today and I am in need of a pair. I need to know what type of screw/bolt holds them in. From looking at mine, it lloks like there is two screws on the top and bottom.

    I want to bring the minimum number of tools with me so could somebody tell me what tool I need to get these off? Maybe an allen head, phillips, or even a bolt...

    I guess I should have got dirty and climed in to look /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    If you need the window hinges as well, all I can say is good luck.

    This is one of the reasons I ditched the sliders, GM used tiny steel screws to hold that setup together, (at least the to set hinge tension) and since they are screwed into aluminum, every time I tried to remove them, the heads just stripped.

    Yep. Someone screwed the pooch big time when they "designed" that. Hmm, let's connect two dissimilar metals in a place where they are certain to get wet. Once the electrolytic action gets started there ain't no easy way to remove those screws ever again. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
