Hi, the frame of the sliding window above the cooker is broken on my V.W. California (2013) and V.W. are telling me that the whole of the side window will need replacing. Does anyone know if this is correct or can you purchase the sliding window unit separately.

Found this on ebay, so it appears you can buy the sliding window unit separately. I now have the part number which I will pass to VW.

You say the frame of the sliding window is broken? Then you don't need that sliding window itself, but where it slides in.
VW will sell the sliding window, or the whole window, including the sliding window. That is just how they work. Some parts can be taken apart, but you can't buy them separately. Too bad.

Which bit of the frame is broken?

The black bit at the top of the sliding window, it is preventing the window from closing and bring flush with the main window.

I meant the frame of the actual sliding window, the black surround

The part that is broken is the top of the frame highlighted.

No its the frame underneath no 7, so it is part of the main frame. I took No 7 off to see where it was broken.

I am afraid not, I wish it was as it is not the latch that it is broken, it is the underneath housing that holds the spring rods.

Or you need 2, as a repair kit, or the whole sliding window if something has broken on the window itself.
