Long Wheel base or Tourneo Sliding door fit a SWB Connect?

Recommended Posts

I've converted my van into a weekend camper / day van for surfing.

 

Now I want to fit a window in the sliding side door my 2015 year (ie Mk2) Transit Connect SWB.

 

An alternative could be buy a used sliding door with a window from a breaker  - either from a Tourneo  or from a crew van.

 

Questions:

 

1)  Will a sliding door from a Long Wheel Base (LWB) Transit Connect fit a Short WB van ?

2)  Will a sliding door from a Transit Tourneo fit?

 

Thanks for any advice

1) LWB and SWB doors are of different shapes, so no.

2) Yes, it's basically the same car.

Just put a window in there !!!  You can find replacement ones in front of many houses on trash day !!!

Standard RV sliders on my 2011 cargo.  Lots of different sizes available. I got the WD07's for the side doors, and WD03's for the rears. Also different adapters available for the thickness of the door skins.

PS ... that's in Photoshop - haven't built it yet, although all the parts are now in and awaiting assembly ...

I'm not too fascinated with the fit and finish of this particular window.

And I REALLY don't think you'd want to get in an accident with that window in your vehicle! Even behind you.

While the Long wheelbase door won't fit . One off a Short Wheelbase Tourneo Connect will fit.

I think that the blue van needs a different color caulking around the window!
