Roy Balcombe created the topic: Window Winding Handle Position L29 Cabriolet
I am restoring a L29 Cabriolet and I am currently working on the doors. Everything is in a very bad state so it is difficult to be certain if things are right. It looks as if the window cranks are in diffent positions on eack door. The drivers door seams to have the crank much lower than the passinger door is this correct?

I believe that on the first few hundred Cabriolets and Convertible Sedans, had the window crank at the same level as the passengers side,. But it was soon to be learned that the crank was in the way of the steering wheel when turning the car. My Cabriolet, body number 115 had the crank in the upper position as the passengers side. So I left it that way. You do have to be careful while driving to make sure the handle is the down position. The crank mechanism will work fine right side up or upside down. A couple of cars that I have worked on, had been changed, as the drivers door wood had two holes cut in it, so the handle could be put in the lower position.
