    Help needed to locate a window repair kit, this is the sliding band that fits around the internal frame with the locking clips on. Googled and Googled with no success. Its a Seitz window which i believe is common to many motor-homes/caravans.

    I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by a "sliding band". Have you a photo, or the identification code, which you can post to help identify it?

    This page may help.

    Do you mean the grey infill strip has pulled away in the corner due to shrinkage ?

    Happened to one of ours. Took heat gun, got it soft, pushed it back in place. Sorted.

    It's called a sliding cam for the central locking.

    http://www.leisurespares.co.uk/files/05_s7-window.pdf

    Page 12 should give you a good start and leisurespares should be able to supply the parts. Although doing a bit more googling with the part numbers might also give results :)

    Yes Brian it is the grey infill strip,ours has not shrunk but has cracked in several places hence the glued on cable tie, you can see the break.
    The strip has gone very brittle due to age and sunlight.

    I've got 3 seitz windows on my Hymer, on all 3 the central locking strip sliders have gone brittle and cracked, probably with age as mine is a 2006 model.

    I've got used to manually sliding them to either lock or unlock the window, I wouldn't pay £150 for 3 but i'm a tight git.

    I look on it as an extra security measure as you have to turn the central locking key and move the sliders to get the window open.

    You've given me an idea though with the cable ties, might be worth trying to source some grey plastic strip instead that matches the sliders and bond that on, thanks for the tip.

    I have just one cracked, but not prepared to fork out £50. At the moment I just move it manually, I tried a bodge with duck tape but it didn't last long, the cable tie looks better.
