Is anyone here able to tell me if these window cranks can be repaired, or replaced ?
Maybe someone can point me to a relevant thread, in case this has been discussed before.
The part numbers for the operators are:
1718C Right Hand
1719C Left Hand
They come with the 11/16" hub projection the Ventura windows require.
All but one of ours failed (and were replaced) in the last couple of years. I think I'll replace the last one before it fails while on the road.
Fortunately they're not quite made out of unobtanium yet. Although I don't know if they're still produced or if all that's available are NOS (new old stock).
Please let me know where you buy yours from. Cheers!
