I have broken the large catch on my nearside upper window in my VW T5 Trident. Its the one with the ratchet for holding the window open.  Does anyone know where I can get a replacement? 
Thanks

Is repair completely impossible? IIRC some at least of that type may now be unobtainable.

What maker's mark is on the window itself? I'm slightly confused, because your forum profile shows a van year of 1998, but that could not possibly be T5 based!

Hi Roopert...thanks for replying. I now have a 57 plate T5 Trident and the window catch has sheared through at its weakest point, under the screw-down ratchet. It appears to be semi-flexible at that point. 
The assembly doesn’t look any different from the ones on my T4, however, so I’m not sure that the part was updated on the T5. 
I suppose I’m looking at a breakage secondhand spare - a rare thing!

I'm certain I can recall a post here - several years ago - about repairing these, as they are prone to failure at the semi-flexible part. I confess I didn't take a lot of interest, because the roof windows on the Trooper don't open!
