    Hey MCF

    I was working on the old Maver sunday. Rolled the windows down and the glass dropped in the door.. Same thing happened a year ago in the other door and I never actually found the right plastic fastener that keeps the windows on the regulator.. An the plastic pen I shaved down to hold it looks sketchy. Id like to replace all 4 of em and have a few just in case.. Any help?

    I couldnt find them when I needed them either. Made my own setup using bolt, lock nut, and rubber grommets.

    I have bought these from Craig, so that I have Factory spares...thankfully Craig keeps so many of these obscure Maverick/Comet parts.

    Here is a place that I have also bought new Blue colored ones, that do fit, in case Craig runs out: (they also have limited stock)

    I just took a set of doors apart not too long ago, and I was thinking of this exact same thing. What I would do is rivet the glass back to the regulator. It's how everything is assembled in the doors of the first generation Ford Rangers from the 80s.
