Re: [T3] rear window seal for notchback


<x-flowed>>I agree that this sounds pretty suspicious. Are you actually feeling the
glass move with respect to the seal or are you just feeling the motion of everything together back there?

The seal was stationary, and the window was wiggling.

If you have the trim now, I'd stick with the OE (American Style) seals even
though they will cost more. If the rubber is this hard you may also have
trouble getting the trim out without damaging it; it is VERY soft and easily
bent

This morning I've been looking for the american style seals, but so far no luck. West coast metric seemed to have a pretty complete parts catalog. They list the american style window seal for a notchback, but indicate that they are not available. I'll keep looking.


It would probably be worthwhile to pay a pro to install the new seal, as the
large glass bits can be quite fragile, especially old ones (really!)

Ok, once I find the seal, I'll have a pro install it.
