2001 LXi Windshield

RE: 2001 LXi Windshield
Hi David
George suggested 1/2 turn from full soft as you indicated. He did not want to remove the sway bar at this time. I do not have the shocks yet - he is setting them and sending to me.
How do you "air level" a coach?
The door does not bind.
Thanks

RE: 2001 LXi Windshield
Hi Urnie,

I'm not surprised. Most shops may need to be convinced that it's safe before they'll do it - liability. The best argument I have is that Ridewell sold the suspension system without it and their engineering staff assured me it wasn't necessary; furthermore, none of the WideBodies have it and they use the same Ridewell suspension. I was hoping that he'd at least remove one vertical link so you could try it on a bumpy road. I was also hoping that he'd take the bus for a test drive to see if things are normal. Removing the bar is something you may need to do yourself. Using the HWH jack leveling system I've gotten the coach so cockeyed that the entryway door wouldn't latch closed. Some coaches came from the factory with the air leveling option. If you want it HWH can add it.

RE: 2001 LXi Windshield
OK, I’m going to revive this thread and try to get back to the original question:
2001LXi needs passenger side windshield. Where to find?

I need one also. Guardian says they don’t have it - try a Bluebird dealer. Local school bus dealer says ‘glad to help, what is the BB part number?’ Hmmm. I seem to remember reading somewhere that the LXi uses the same windshield as a TC2000 BB transit bus and that they bought it from their local school bus dealer. Is this correct?

If it is the TC2000, does anyone have the BB part number for the proper TC2000 part number? Or if it is not the TC2000, which BB product is it? The bus dealer showed me they have about 8-10 different windshield numbers listed in their BB Quick Reference guide and they need that number to order the correct one. They said the etched number on the corner of the windshield won’t help as they don’t have a cross reference to the BB part number.

Thanks!!

Hi Mike,

If it helps the BB part numbers are:

LH: 1870450
RH: 1870443

The glass was used on the LTC40 transit bus, which is the bus chassis used for the LXi.

Many Thanks David.

I expect that’s what they need. I’ll call them tomorrow. Their price quote was very reasonable.
