I agree with Paul, Alex's comments are unfair and just a little too passionate.
The rubber 'hinges' can and do deteriorate, but as long as the window remains closed (or even partially open on the latch) it'll stay in place so a problem or deterioration isn't obvious even in normal use.
I found this out when I went to remove the latch to polish up. The window simply moved rearward (which the latch stops from happening) and dropped out of the B-Pillar. Thankfully I was holding the latch at the time and the window dangled from my hand down the side of the car. (Was due to be repainted so no problems with scratching)

It's GT Nissan at 38 Kent Terrace, Wellington
The guy dealing with this is Shaun 04 801 5567
I've had a trawl through the 4 boxes (120l storage size) of parts about a year ago, but very little was for the 105 series. I think he has a few lost boxes that occasionally turn up with 105 bits. For the rest of the parts, I don't recall the majority of parts number (maybe 116?)
Shaun's a great guy and very helpful so give him a call

PaulOLoughlin Got one thanks through Milano in VIC. Was a bit hard to track down because it's a common issue and everyone I contacted was out of stock.

Not sure of the value of your post, Alex. The 105s are a great daily drive, up for plenty of abuse, and mine has served my well for almost 10 years. They like to be driven hard and mine has always been serviced by Alfa specialists. However, in New Zealand, it needed some rust removed. At the garage they opened all the windows and clearly didn't tighten the LHS rear clasp when they closed it. I didn't check, took it on the motorway and wound the front window up. The pressure change pushed out the rear side window and ripped it from the seals.

So yeah, I knew the seals needed replacement - they all do, it's a 35 yr old car - but it wasn't a problem as long as the window was closed properly. There's only so much money to spend on replacing bits.

Super1600 Hi mate, more to the point, which side of the rear side windows do you need. I am pretty sure I have both a spare LHS and RHS. No idea on the cost of shipping though from Hobart (Tas) to Auckland.

Hans-Peter That is unkind, when I got my first coupe I checked it out and drove to my first race meeting, Bay of Plenty to Manawatu, rear side window promptly fell out in the streets of Feilding, had a great meeting though, May Madness, still going with the same car 9 years later, anyway a window that was firmly fitted was loose after a 4 hour trip over mountains/road works etc, quite a normal trip in these parts.

Alex A window, seriously? If you can't notice that your window is in danger of falling out, I'd say that you're going to miss pretty much every other problem awaiting you. The kind that will leave you stranded on the side of the road, for example. I don't mean to sound unkind, but are you actually capable of looking after this car? There are thousands of other cars out there, even in NZ, that are better candidates for daily abuse.

...and it's the rear side window. Anyone have a spare? I'll need the clasp as well, or at least the part that was attached to the window.

Dean Peterken Thanks Hans-Peter
What sort of condition are the Bosch ones in and how much do you want for one? From what I've seen on the BB the Paris-Rhone is not worth trying to fix and the Bosch one is the way to go.
I'll count the teeth on mine to confirm the fitting.

Just thinking out load.....

Alfetta starter has lightly different mounting holes, its only a mm different but its enough to strip your ring gear, which is a pity as its a more powerfull 1.1hp vs .7 hp bosch. Could be made to fit by redrilling holes though.
I have a Paris Rhone starter from a 75 which looks good you could use for parts, I also have some Bosche starters.

Alex Vernolese,

I have some 2000GTV inner rings (link) but no outers (as far as I can make out). Let me know if you cannot find anything closer to home and I'll look into postage costs.

Alex.

Dear Santa...

Sorry to hijack someone else's request for parts, but I need some chrome or stainless headlamp rims for my 1972 GTV2000.
I probably need lots more too but they would be good for starters.
