    WTB: Window Thrust Wedge 1972 911

    Hi,
    I am looking for a part that is discontinued but someone might have one from a parted out car. The part is called a thrust wedge or stop and it stops the side window when the window is lowered. This is particularly important with power windows. The part number is 901542063 00
    It shows as part #5 in this diagram.
    PM or email me.

    If too difficult to find you may want to just fashion your own part out of a piece of foam rubber and then glue it into place with contact cement.
    Post #3 on this thread has the basic dimensions of the part you are looking for.

    BTW, If you are in NYC, I suggest a trip to Canal St. Rubber for this.

    Thanks Nick. Your answer may be the only one. A trip to Canal St. is always interesting.
    Actually I have factory power windows and my wedges are there but the rubber is hard and shrunk, so the window sometimes, if I am not careful, gets stuck in the down position. Those windows move quite fast, not for the faint of heart.
    So, to answer the question on previous posts, yes these wedges do exist. It would be a great part to 3D print. I was hoping someone would have one so I would have one out of the car to copy if that was the only way.

    Look at later model cars for those stops. I have a 70S with power windows I just restored, it’s a big heavy metal encased rubber wedge with 2 screw holes in it fastened at the bottom of the door

    Here are two pics:
    One of the glued in all-rubber version on a '72 with manual windows (you can see one of the two holes in front of the rubber piece on the bottom of the door to install the metal encased wedge that Mark has mentioned).
    The second pic I lifted from Post #8 on the above mentioned thread of the metal encased wedge.
