Well i got the whole pos out of there and wedged a block of wood to hold the window up
The engineer who came up with this mess oughta be shot at with a ball of his own chit.
The weak link is the cable, right where it exits the sleeve it pivots around a 1.5" dia cam and clamps on to the T-bar mount that holds the window? I can fix this cable but it would be frail and would break again soon as someone pressed too much up' preasure. What I need is an exact cable that they dont sell, so Im going to have be thrifty and look in junk yards for a match
