Question

I was wondering if on a 93' or 94' Caprice I could save myself the trouble of buying the rear window fix kit for $450 and just buy that little plastic piece and just stick that over the window but still have the pointed glass under the plastic piece? If anyone has tried this maybe they could post pictures or something. Thanks

OK,

This may sound like cheating but I did this fix over a 2 years ago on one window and last year on another and it is holding up perfectly.

The plastic guide that holds the arm has a hole in the middle for the pin and 2 outer holes "to save weight?"... anyway. Get some "picture wire" (found near picture frames)... cut about a 4" length and feed it through the outer holes. There is room behind the guide for the wire to run. Twist the wire together in front and under the pin from the window arm. Use pliers to twist the wire tight while the pin is in place. Lubricate with some white lithium grease and you are done. The clip will never come apart again.

Regards,

I think he is talking about cloning a 93 or 94 Caprice by changing to the rounded style rear side windows.
