Rear side window catch location.


Hi all

Can anyone provide a pic of where the rear side window catch fixes to the body. I'm using the two aluminium U shaped trims that go around the roof edge from A to C pillar and, on these, the two holes for the catch screws are very close to the edge. I was under the impression, perhaps wrongly, that this U section was held in place along the bottom edge by both the door seal rubber and the rubber seal for the rear window. However, if this is the case, the two screws for the catch would be going through the grp flange that rubber goes on to. If this were the case, surely, the catch would prevent the window seal fitting in place? The other alternative is that the aluminium U section sits above both the door and window rubbers allowing the catch mounting to be further away from the flange that hols the window seal. If this is the case, I presume I'd need to bond a bit of wood to the body for the catch to screw in to?

OK, so I think I've found the answer to this myself. I remembered that Erik had kindly posted some pics of the interior of a P1 (Stuarts car). From this, it would appear that the window latch sits on top of the rear side window rubber and is screwed through it, the aluminium U shaped section and, presumably , the GRP flange for the rubber.

Can anyone confirm this is correct?

Thanks, Gary.

If the metal plate in the second pic is supposed to support the window latch fixing it's in a slightly different place from this pic:-

which is, I believe, an original example. This would suggest the mounting screws go through the window seal, U shaped roof trim and then into the body.

The steel backing plate is a much stronger base for the clamp latch than the edge of the GRP. My Ph1 is the same setup, original.
