VW T4 Topaz side window needed URGENTLY! Empty VW T4 Topaz side window needed URGENTLY!

Post by GrimTim on Wed Nov 18, 2020 12:45 pm

Hello, 

First post on the group and looking for as much help as i can get - please excuse the wording i use to explain what i'm after........

I am upgrading my camper van experience from a 1964 Split to a 2002 Topaz. 

I have the van but i need some parts to make it completely waterproof.

On the fibreglass/plastic roof section, there is a cut in window about 18" x 4" with oval/rounded ends on a pop out hinge - i don't know how else you'd describe it!

Mine has a crack in it which lets in water, fills up and then pours into the van leaving horrible marking and who knows what underneath the trim.

I am trying to get a replacement urgently as the weather is getting worse.

I am also trying to locate a company selling van cover to fit the high top form of the T4 topaz if anyone has any suggestions.

Many thanks in advance.

If you have a search of previous posts, you should find a post a few months ago about replacing these windows with a toughened glass panel instead. It seems (to me) an excellent way to go, as that should be a solution that lasts the life of the van.
