Upper sleeper windows


Recommended Posts

Has anyone replaced the upper sleeper windows in 2011 Volvo 780. The rubber that holds the window in is all cracked. The dealer said I need to replace the whole assembly. Can glass shops get theses windows and the rubber seals or do I have to get them at the dealer.

Wouldnt this be like a windshield replacement, which are often done using the same rubber gasket over again??

Seems like the parts guys are getting paid to sell parts, whether needed or not.  An assembly rather than the needed PART.

Will this help?  https://www.vanderhaags.com/Search-Results.php?manufacturer=volvo&inventorytype=sleeper-window

The rubber is what's bad and the dealer said you can't get the rubber you have to get new style window and it comes with the rubber. I would like to replace just the rubber.

I included that link only to show that the dealer may not be the exclusive authority on those and the only source.  Kind of like my experience with slide seals for my 5ers.  I have found several sources for them, and bought and replaced them in kind.  Both of my 5ers are out of production with manufacturer out of that business.

What did you end up doing?  I have the same problem on my 2014 - I see used ones for sale from the scrap yards but what are the odds of the seal being cracked....

Was hoping the thread was about motorizing the windows. Wouldn't it be great to hold a button from the driver seat to open and close them? I sometimes open them in the heat of summer to let out some of the heat while sitting. Then I forget to close them till I'm on the road and wondering why my A/C isn't cooling as fast as it used to.
