  • Hawk Window Mechanism

    Trying to get my Hawk interior door panels back together; I have the panels covered and ready to go back on the doors. I have a couple of questions about the window handle/winder. The manual shows the parts shown, installed from left to right. Does anyone know how the plastic "separator" (middle piece) goes on? it has a flat side and a raised side. Not sure how it should be facing. Also, what is the function of the spring? Would it hurt to leave the spring out?

    My '60 did not have the springs, I have not noticed anything bad happening.

        Depending on what year you have some models had an escutcheon first, flat plastic spacer with flat side towards the window crank next and than the crank. My Hawk has foam rubber donuts to hold the door panel out instead of springs.

          The spring goes behind the door panel. The white plastic piece goes between the door panel and chrome handle.

            There's NO escutcheon for 1956-1957 Hawks ....'58's use an aluminum escutcheon, and '59-'64 used the plastic one.
            As MB indicated- the spring goes behind the door panel with the "small" end out. The plastic liner fits against the door handle with the "offset" facing the door panel. This allows clearance for the retaining clip.

              Thanks to all; thats the way I figured the plastic
              separator should face;
              There doesn't appear to be enough space for escutcheons as
              the stems don't stick out all that much, especially the shorter
              window winder stem. My biggest concern was the window winder
              handle rubbing against the panel material, causing wear, but
              I guess the plastic piece would prevent that..
