Postby m2102 » Tue Sep 22, 2015 6:53 pm



does anyone have or know where to get a video or pictures on adjusting the lock levers for the windshield? I have one side that is loose and could stand to be tightened

If the 1800 is the same as the 1500 - see this topic

viewtopic.php?t=6911

Mine kept vibrating down - and I fixed it by using the method shown in that topic.

Hope that helps

Thanks fir quick reply aussie81interstate. I had a 1500 and it is similar. On the 1800 it doesn't have the bolt to tighten when garnish is pushed back. Mite end uo pulling the mirror off ti see what i can't get to

There is an adjustment behind the mirror.Been a while,but I'm pretty sure you have to pull at least the mirror.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

Before you try adjusting the levers, pull the windshield garnish off and check the rubber pieces on the windscreen holder. They have a habit of coming loose.
#12 on the parts fiche. The rubbers are #14. My 2004 had three of these come loose and the same problem as you have. One side would slide down.

I had it off and didn't see anything missing or loose. next time I happen to have it off i'll look closer. I did see on the screws that hold the garnish on has the part missing that snugs it up when the screws are tightened.

There is an adjustment on the rods the levers are attached to if need be.
