Hi. After 28 years the spiral balance in one of my front windows has quit in me. Quote to repair $420.
Happy to DIY but while there are plenty of videos out there for DH windows, I can't find instructions form my Boral window. Have you replaced one? Was it difficult? Do you have instructions? Thanks
Welcome to the Workshop community. Great to have you join us - love that D.I.Y. spirit you have.
Let me tag the ever-helpful @Brad to see if he might have tackle a job like this in the past and could kick off the discussion for you.
Please feel free to post anytime you need a hand or have something to share.
I think I have fixed one in an aluminium window, given I don't have a great recall of the event it mustn't of been too difficult.
Parts seem to come in at under $30 a side, the heavy duty ones are a special order so timing may be an issue.
If you have access to the fixing points it shouldn't be $300+ in labour costs to change, if you can take it out to take to the store to get a new one you should be able to put it in again.
Thanks for replying. I have sourced the parts and even with 4 new boots (top and bottom) I imagine $80ish. Wasn't sure about the fit of the boots - plenty of videos for steel boots with rivets etc but mine are plastic and can't see instructions for removal/fitting.
