sash tilt bars

A quick learner from South Carolina says:
I'm trying to locate replacement sash bars for a single hung tilt MW vinyl window. Here near the ocean the salt air corrodes metal parts. The sash bars corroded to the tilt mechanism of the balance. I'll need to replace the balance and the sash bars. The balance is your # 795 that will replace what is there now but I don't know which sash bars fit with this balance. The MW windows are about 13 years old.
Can you help?

Thank you for posting in this matter. After extensive research, we have been unable to find these exact pivot bars. That said, please see our new 26-236 and 26-237 Pivot Bar carriers used in conjunction with our 26-083. I think this might work as a possible replacement for you. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Hi- I don't have a picture of it right now, but I need a replace pivot cam for a vinyl M&W window. Home was built in 2004. Does anyone know if all M&W vinyl window pivot cams were the same at the time (or did they differ by model)? I will buy the replacement part from you. Can get image within 24 hrs. if needed. Thanks! Your how-to videos are great!!!!!

Thanks for posting! I have placed you into an existing discussion regarding this pivot bar. As you can see, we do not have an exact replacement, but you may want to consider using our 26-083 pivot bar in conjunction with our 26-236 or 26-237.
