Window repair

The lower left window mechanism on the rear wall broke (torque rod bearing), therefore cannot open it without going outside and doing it manually and propping it open with something, does anyone know how to repair this.

What year trailer?

Once we determine the brand of window you have, I'd just go to an RV dealer with that name and see if they have a replacement part. I seem to recall those things are pressed together and while you may get it apart, it probably won't be real strong if you were able to fix it and reassemble. I wasn't aware of any bearings in the windows though.

If the window is easy enough to open from the outside, make sure to secure it before you tow so that passing vehicles don't pull the window out and possibly cause damage.

If the window crank mechanism is broken, the best way is to remove the complete window and drill out the rivits that hold the operator to the window frame. I have done it without removing the widow, taking the glass panes out and sticking a drill in there to drill it out. you can use long screws to fasten it back in place. But it's usually easier to pull the window. You may have a hard time finding a replacent these days. these crank out windows aren't used much anymore.
