Rear window pins/bolts/clips/whatever they're called

Rear window pins/bolts/clips/whatever they're called

Postby MuRKRoW [OP] » April 16th 2012, 5:11am

Well I decided to remove my 2 back windows to black them out with spray paint and in the process, broke 2 of the 4 bolt things that hold the window (1 on either side). Just so everyone knows what i'm talking about, here are pics:

Does anyone know where I can find these? I've been really frustrated with the water leaking in the back windows and having water shoot into my van when I get a car wash. At this point, I think my only hope would be to look in a junk yard. Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks!

That's probably going to be a JY part but you could give your local GM dealer a call, someone parting a van on CL or maybe a member here has some floating around their garage.

You can find the part number here http://www.gmpartseast.com/

Thanks Jasen! Sorry for the late reply. I was actually able to buy the parts from www.gmpartseast.com and they're back to normal!

The parts were $13.82, but the shipping was nearly the same ($12.21) :/ so it came to $26.03 total. And that was only for 2 of the 4 top window mounting bolts! Definitely a ripoff, but I didn't have time to run to the junk yard so it's all I could do.
