The "knob" The "crank handle"
What you see above is a picture of the no-longer-connected portion of my window crank handle. I was exiting my vehicle at my parent's house and my leg brushed against the inside of the door. I heard a loud "SNAP" and then noticed something go flying 10-15 feet away from my car. I walked over and picked it up, only then to realize what it was.
This may not seem like a big deal, after all, how often do you need to roll down your windows anyway? Apparently, more often than I realized!
It has been a challenge to roll the window down in the drive thru at restaurants, let alone put it back up as soon as I drive off after getting my food. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Thankfully it is wintertime so I have until the spring to figure out how to re-attach the knob to the window crank handle. I am hopeful that some good super glue and my being careful will help me avoid some crazy duct-tape remedy. But if that happens at least I'll have another easy blog post! :)
