    All of the windows on the PA-18 have letters in the parts manual, starting with the front left "A" window (which sort of looks like an "A"), then the two slider windows B, C, and the two D windows in the back which are interchangeable p/ns, then the swing up window on the right is "E".

    Wow, never thought I'd see a thread on closed windows in a Cub. Most Cub guys think it's against the law to close the window and door while flying. My Pa11 was good to 122mph with everything wide open. Loops, rolls and slips included

    You can remedy the d window leading edge separation by using a small strip of clear leading edge tape under the felt seal and wrapping it around the tube....no channel needed. Did this 3 years ago on my bird with no issue since

    Heres the tape I used on my D windows....I removed the pile seal and installed the tape and reinstalled the pile seal over it.,I then wrapped the clear tape around the tube that the window was double face taped to. Flying with the window open isnt a problem now with the D window separating from the post. Might look for a thick black tape to eventually use for this,I expect the clear tape will yellow with time.

    I thought the door and window closed was for parking it outside during a flyinn when it rains?
