    Toll booth window carrier plastic snapped

    Earlier on in the week I was feeling pretty good that I managed to remove the carrier.

    However today I dropped the carrier onto the concrete floor and snapped off one of the plastic retaining legs.

    I have read that Rob Grady / PJ Grady uses a rivet mod but have not been able to find anything in thei pissed off and angry frame of mind.

    I really don't think that a glued repair will work - any suggestions - especially from anybody who has resolved this problem ?

    Cheers

    I have read that Rob Grady / PJ Grady uses a rivet mod but have not been able to find anything in the search facility here?
    Feeling pissed off and in an angry frame of mind considering it's 70 to buy a new component.

    My VIN:    thirty two 'o five

    Totally fixable.

    If it was me, i'd fabricate a new piece out of metal and use shrink wrap on the "hook," drill out the low rivet and use a new rivet in the spot to hold the fabricated piece in place.
