CJ7 Vent Window

The bottom pivot arm/bolt of my passenger side vent window is broken. Can anyone suggest where to find one instead of buying the whole assembly? It looks like the glass frame and the arm may be one piece, but can't tell.

Bump, Need to know this as well. In addition, where can you buy just the glass frame piece? All I see is people/vendors/ebay/craigslist selling the entire assembly. I believe the same identical vent window used in the 83+ CJ as in the YJ

I have tried to search for some information on these vent windows without any luck. Does anyone know if I can get just the vent windo glass frame or do I have to buy the entire assembly. Has anyone taken these apart?

I resorted to buying the complete frame.

I ended up doing the same thing, buying new complete windows.

I have an 82 that had the same problem. I was able to remove the window glass from the frame and TIG welded the broken stem back on. Just need to careful when removing the glass from the frame.

I have only seen the whole assembly.
The older ones are stainless on the outer/ forward channel and the newer ones are black .
Only separate prices I've seen for sale are the seal and the dealer use to sell the lock handles.
9 out of 10 people selling old ones say that theirs works fine when in fact, the bottom stud is broken. If there is no resistance in the motion of the window, it's just free floating in the pivot. They can be fixed, but it's a tricky weld.
