Defender Rear Door Opening Window
Land Rover Defender Opening Rear Door Window.
If there is no stock of your chosen type please use the pre-order feature. These are made in about 4 weeks.
The Window is made with stamped and certified vehicle glass and is expected to pass the TUV test without issue. The other windows we supply all pass TUV and are fitted in many countries in mainland Europe and use the same glass.
Fitting is via 17 x 4mm Rivets. The window is designed slightly smaller than the door aperture to allow for positioning of the rivet holes around the aperture flange. The variations in aperture sizes on Land Rover door is so allowed for as they vary greatly in size. A suitable vehicle glazing sealant is needed to prevent water ingress.
The window is secured with a internally affixed latch which is similar to the latch used on the side sliding windows. The window is not "lockable" in the same way the side windows are not "lockable".
This product is a Registered Design and protected under both UK, EU and International Law. If you would like to sell them we are looking for wholesale, fitting and distribution partners.
Suggested Example of Rivets (depending on age of door 10mm or 12mm long is suggested but please check the grab thickness of the rivet)

Land Rover defender replacement sliding window for the rear door of all defender models with the square bottom on the rear door glass. It is a direct replacement for the window fitted to the rear door. The window is constructed of rigid aluminum which is powder coated black. The glass is chemically tinted to 85% or Standard Green. The glass is tempered and E11 rated as these are replacement vehicle windows manufactured to the highest standards. The window sliders are made from quality felt and the outer pane of glass slides left or right and secures using a spring loaded window catch. The windows are NOT lockable and close similarly to the side windows on a Station Wagon. The aperture is approximately 40% once opened due to the catch.
The original window can be removed by unscrewing the internal mounting strips and prising the glass away from the sealant. Clean off the sealant. This window should slot straight in FROM THE OUTSIDE using the original window aperture. The fitting should take only 20 mins. The window needs to be sealed with a very small bead of sealant around its frame and either screwed or riveted in. It's also worth putting a bit of sealant on each rivet if they are of the open type. Variations in the window aperture cannot be accounted for but the window has been tested on multiple doors to accommodate for a lot of variations by Land Rover. I cannot guarantee they will be 100% slot in although they should be as testing has taken a long time !
Its worth noting that on all the doors I tried them on the window needed to be raised up slightly to allow the rivets to sit equally all the way round the window aperture and centrally in the door flange. This is the same with refitting standard glass you always needed to raise it up. Cutting the heads off Zip Ties make excellent spacers.
In the event a window is broken the frame will need to be removed and taken apart as it is assembled in two halves to enable the glass to be replaced. Obviously this will require the window to be fully removed and so only use the smallest quantity of sealant when fitting to allow this. The more you use the harder it will be to remove. Sika 221 or 252 in Black is recommended although very thin Butyl Tape is also perfect. I can supply replacement glass and will continue to do so. I've fully fitted and removed a window myself and it was pretty easy.
