Rubber Door Seals And Quarter Panel Seals


70deluxe

Recommended Posts

I know I've been posting a lot of questions on here and appreciate all the help.

 

I finally got the rubber seals in the front doors and quarter panel windows (sore hands...).  I've got the window b-pillar bracket and seal all cut to fit as well. 

 

I'm ready to glue them in place.  Questions are these:

 

I bought some Wurth rubber glue and i just want to make sure I'm applying it in the right places

 

1. The rubber gaskets fit nice and tight on the window starting at the Hoffmeister Kink all the way to the B-pillar (picture 1).  Do I need to put glue in that area? 

 

2. I am assuming I put glue in this area--the horizontal line of the quarter panel window where there is no tongue and groove (picture 2).

 

3.  The door gasket/rubber fits very tightly in all areas where it comes in contact with the frame and the window but in pictures 3 and 4 this all gets glued.  Is there any thing I should know about this before applying the glue?  Any tricks or tips?

 

Thanks in advance.

I know about the door seal so...#3 Make sure all old glue is cleaned from the paint with Goof Off, which is acetone and xylene mixed together. wear chemical resistant gloves and work in adequate ventilation. Lightly sand the rubber then clean with Goof Off. Remove lower B pillar welting and move it out of the way. Apply glue to B pillar and to rubber. Let set for 10 minutes. Then press the rubber in place, replace welting, theres a channel in the rubber for it to go into.

 

You may have to adjust the vent window angle and window to get the door ro close properly. New door seals are stiffer than the old one. Here's the how too: http://www.bmw2002faq.com/_/technical-articles/body-and-interior/window-height-and-vent-window-adjustments-r73
