Starting to put the car back together.... Looking at the gasket that slides in the threshold and noting they are not close to the same... part number 51 711 813 507

Anyone know if I got the wrong one or....

According to my parts book it is part# 51 47 1 822 072

Item 8 in the pic.

edit:

I seem to remember on my first '02 ('70), there was a seal attached to the bottom lip of the door. Maybe to stop water getting up inside? Perhaps that's whay you have?

I'm in the exact same position as you...

 

Did you find out the correct part number?

It´s correct that there are 3 (maybe 4 but then I´ve never seen the earliest type) different types.

 

What year is your car? Or better if things are maybe no longer original in your car: Can you post a pic of the complete part that you´d like to put the gasket into?

 

Best regards, Lars.

Thanks for the replies.

It's for a '76

 

Part needed vs purchased part (from ECS, Part # 51711813507 )

Hi Anthony,

 

what you have (51 71 1 813 507) is for the early, grey entrance capping (that´s how BMW calls it in the parts catalogue) that doesn´t cover the upper outer sill/rocker but is screwed (or originally maybe riveted / I did always use screws) into the inner sill/rocker through the outer edge of the carpet.

What you´ll need is the already above mentioned 51 47 1 822 072.

 

Or you keep the 507s and do a complete swap to the earlier style. Needed entrance capping 51 47 7 470 007 was NLA for quite some time, but since my friend André has initiated a reproduction you can again buy them from him. W+N should have them, too, but they also got theirs from André.

 

Best regards, Lars.

an old thread but a good one.  confirming that 51711813507 rubber seal hooks on to installed door plastic seal.  Thanks in advance for your feedback.  not a clean design/ finish I must say!

I searched the Internet for “D-shaped” weatherstrip, ended up finding something that is adhesive, vs. OEM which has lips, and it works fine. And looks stock. From Amazon: Kaixuan KX Automotive Universal New Weather Stripping EPDM Rubber Seal Strip D-Shape, 3/4”
