Dometic CaraD (hourglass) door replacement plastic latch/linkages to fix faulty glass release mechanism


After having repeated failures of the internal plastic linkages that release the glass section of the door on my Golf Savannah, I took matters into my own hands and am now producing a replacement that has more reinforcement and is more durable than the Dometic part.

These doors are used widely on Jayco (silverline), Golf, Avan, Avida, Zone RV and many more..

I'm selling these via ebay - the set of 2 x top and 2 x bottom linkages will do a whole door and cost less than a set of original replacements that will probably just fail again in another couple of years..

Cheers

Tim

Good to see that someone has seen a problem, and made an improvement, so thanks for that

I do not have that type of door, but if I did, I would be carrying a few of your spare parts

If anyone needs an entire "Hourglass" door including the mounting frame - send me a PM, and I'll sell below Dealer pricing, can also arrange fitment. May suit someone refurbishing old van or making their own.
