Clips for windows (exterior)

Hi,

This is my first post and I am thrilled to be here. We just acquired a 1977 Ford Brougham 22
Ft. Class C. We are very excited about it. As with any vehicle this age, small things start to wear as is the case with some window clips that have gotten brittle and broken or have come off altogether. I want to replace them but haven't found a source.

I included a photo of where the clips SHOULD go. Any thoughts or suggestions for a source would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Mike K. In Columbus, Ohio

They would be easier to locate if you know who the window manufacturer is. The name may be etched in the glass of the window.

Thanks so much for the quick response. This was the info that I photographed from the window. The manufacturer appears to be Sun Valley?


Here is the info from the window:

Thanks!

Mike, there's no 'clip' to replace, that's what's called a weep hole, it's there to allow any water that collects in the window track a place to get back out.

I believe that weep hole cover is made by Swisco. 1"x 3/16". Part number 26-216.

Those rectangular holes are weep holes. You can cover them, here's a link to one source: Pelland Enterprises Motor Home Products - RV Windows
If you have issues with rattling windows, the window channels are probably worn and brittle. Here's a link to one source for new channels that will stop rattling: Pelland Enterprises Motor Home Products - RV Windows

Good luck with it.

Thanks all for the great information. I will pursue this and see what I come up with for the windows.
