RE: [T3] Outer window scraper replacement

<x-charset iso-8859-1>I looked at my very worn/breaking apart scrapers on my baby, then looked at
the good ones on my Jetta.  Ya know what causes the old scrapers to break
down?  Arms.  If you roll down the window all the way and rest your arm in
the window sill area you will be scrunching the scrapers and, during the
warmer times, depositing caustic human skin oils and salty sweat on them.
Through better engineering, I assume, my Jetta scrapers are more in the door
and away from my arm.

What I have been doing for a long time is NOT rolling my window down all the
way in my baby.  I roll it down so the top edge of the glass is even with
the (remaining) scraper.  This way I can rest my boney arm on the sill
without tormenting the scrapers.  Every little bit to make 'em last, ya know

BTW, I have a decades worth of VW magazines (and probably more).  If some
one can tell me the magazine title, year and month then I can scan the
article and email it -- I'd post it to my web page but that could be
violating copyright laws and I don't want to get on the bad side of any of
the mags :)
