Windshield gasket identification

Recommended Posts

I removed the windshield from my 71 2002 a while ago, (Jimmy Carter was the prez) and ordered a new windshield gasket during the Regan administration. Well actually I guess I ordered 2. My question is how do I tell if this (pic 2) is the poorly rated Uro gasket or the BMW one. The one still in its bag is clearly OEM, but I don't know how to ID the other one. There are no markings that I can find on it but I recall that the Uro brand has a different shape (missing extra rubber flap on the lower, dashboard edge??)

Having a windshield installer come to the house on Friday to help with the install and want to use the good gasket. The car was painted in '82 so I hope it is properly cured by now.

Shouldn't that say "made in WEST Germany" if Ronnie was still the chimp in charge?



I think at this point, let the installer see what works.  The URO problem started after I began

working on 2002's, and that was under the first Clinton administration.  


The flap was for the early dash, and the later 1- piece got the flapless one, I vaguely recall from a ShrubII era discussion...


Are they both still supple?



in for more pics.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
