  • Body / Glass: Window Regulator Spring and Door Latch Spring 1949 Truck

    I find that I have two broken springs in the door of this truck, part 278809 for the door latch, and 652954 for the window crank. The websites for Studebaker International, Stephen Allen, Classic Enterprises, Studebakers West and Studebaker.parts.com do not show availability of these springs.

    Has anyone found either a source or a substitution for these? Thanks.

    I don't think this is the right spring, but this guy might have it.

      Thank you, Skip, for your lead. I did not find any matches, but for door latch spring 278809 I bought a set of 2 for a 1933-1934 Packard. It did fit, and the door handle no longer sags. Maybe or maybe not related, the inside latch does not open the door after installing this spring in place of the broken one.
