Windshield Adjustment arm repair
My son has an 1999 LT that took a nap in the garage and on the way down broke the lower arm of the windshield that rides up and down. I brought it to a welding shop and it is pot metal and didn't weld at all. So, took it to a nearby machine shop and they made another one for me. Great guys, willing to go the extra mile (helped that one of them was a rider) to make it work. I figure that it is about $60-80 to make these, and they would be wiling to make more and get it even cheaper. If you have ever tried to find these on Ebay, you know they are rare, because they are the weak link. No money to be made here, but willing to see if others are in the same predicament as I was. I think the only way BMW sells it is the entire assembly for $800 or close to it.
If you are interested, I'm newly retired, and happy to do the let work on this.
