I've replaced my cracked window crank handles several times from junkyard
vanagons only to have them crack shortly after. You can buy them cheap
enough new but only in black. Brown like mine seem to be made of some
precious plastic and the new price is five times the black price. So
during my lunchtime visit to the junkyard I found a 1990 Jetta with brown window
cranks. They look good. fit fine, and hopefully will last. Price was
only $1 each. Anybody else w/ brown broken window handles should try Jetta (or
Golf) brown ones. Not a major find but a useful one just the same.
