Surely you have a small LR parts place near you or I would have thought
Richard @ Beamends could get a courier to get you one quick. These
mechanisms are rubbish and even a small LR place should have them in
stock. Getting a s/h door seems to be overkill and its window winder
would probably be on it's last legs anyway. S/h doors worth about a
hundred quid if it's decent enough for your uses, and a new mechanism
is less than twenty quid (plus a whole lot cheaper to ship). I know
what I'd rather do....
Another thought, if you have a 110 station wagon, what about swapping
the mechanisms from the door behind - I can't recall exactly how it
goes since I haven't done if for two years or so but it would be worth
double checking the regulators to see if they're the same, they are
handed, and the channel may well be different but I would have thought
that LR would have reused them. Then you can just jam the middle row
window up to get you moving, not ideal though if you have kids in the
