1982-1987 Buick G-Body -
WINDOW RATTLE ELIMINATION KIT
The kit is designed to work on all 1982-1987 G-body two-door cars.
This window rattle elimination kit replaces our old discontinued kit, Part #6841. The end result is still the same.
The difference is you have to use all 3 of your existing metal brackets and re-glue the new original GM window felt material (included in the kit) to them.
ONE kit will do ONE complete door on all 1982-1987 Regals, including all 1984-1987 Turbo Regals.
You may want to consider replacing the power window motor with our new power window motor, Part #6949, at the same time. These new power window motors are noticeably faster than the ones GM used in the door.
Over the years, Pete Serio has made various window adjustments on a large number of Buicks at various Buick events and at our location. He has an excellent working knowledge of these cars and their window spot weaknesses. He became known as the “Window Rattle Guy.” He designed this window rattle elimination kit for us back in 1999.
Kit is complete with all the parts you would need to eliminate rattle problems in the door, along with easy-to-follow directions.
By making just a few minor modifications such as using screws in place of rivets making it user friendly. Installation of these items does require some mechanical ability, since you will have to remove the window completely from the door. We recommend however, this kit be installed by someone familiar with the inner workings of door windows. It would also be helpful to have Pete’s book, “How to Eliminate Window Rattles and Wind Noise,” (Part #6739) if you don’t have it already.
Keep in mind, we are still depending on GM as a supplier for the one main part in this kit. Since the cars are now over 20 years old, we have no idea how long GM will still offer this one critical part that is needed in this kit. With that in mind, we recommend you purchase one or two kits to have on hand for when you plan to have this project done in the future.
Each kit will do one door. If both of the doors need adjustments, you will need TWO kits.
NOTE - We are offering Pete’s book for a special price of $12, instead of $19.95, if you order it with the Window Rattle Elimination Kit.
