Hi,

 

Took the rear window out of my '91 Cooper yesterday to repair a rust bubble on the window sill, and I accidentally snapped off one of the hinges on the window frame..!

 

Any ideas if this would be a whole new window frame, a ghetto repair or if I can buy the little hinge somewhere to replace the snapped one (please include links)???

 

Picture below to show what I mean.

 

 

Many Thanks,

 

All help Appreciated.

Part of the frame & no longer available - very expensive when it was. Either secondhand or a spot of metal working required.

 

There are 2 tiny screws  holding the frame together.

It should be stainless, so a good bit of TIG welding should do.
