Sliding window catch for Autohomes Kamper

Post by Funkychops »

Hi 

My van was originally (I think) an Autohomes Kamper 2 with the sliding window above the cooker (behind the drivers seat). Unfortunately, the sliding window catch which secures the window has snapped at some point in the past and I've struggled to find anything which may be compatible. Does anyone know where I might be able to buy one of these, as I assume it is an Autohomes part without an obvious modern day supplier...

Thanks

Agree that's the closest part I've found as well, but suspect the holes are in the wrong place...

I think the clip is supposed to latch into the frame to prevent the glass from being slid. Bit of a security risk at present!

Put a small length of wood at the base of the non sliding window so the sliding section can't open as hits the wood as a temporary solution while you scour the four corners of the earth for a new catch
