Door seal "U channel" that runs up the B pillar?

I can't make out the diagram in the larger parts manual.

What I need to know is what is the part # / name of the strip that sits behind the door weatherstripping and runs up the B pillar. I also believe it runs across the top of the door opening (and on top of the headliner) and down the A pillar. Is it the same a the window guid?

 

Any help would be appreciated .

FYI: the pinch welt only runs up the B pillar & stops. The piece that starts at the A pillar runs over the door area, across the top of the B pillar and over the rear side window to the C pillar.

O2Les,  could you expand on the the piece "The piece that starts at the A pillar runs over the door area, across the top of the B pillar and over the rear side window to the C pillar.".

 

Name or part# ?

Thanks

I think this is what you're looking for, and IIRC it's sold by the meter, not in specifically cut lengths.  Looking at the sketch below (from Realoem.com), there's a single piece of pinchwelt that begins at the bottom of the front door opening's leading edge (abutting the forward edge of the sill door seal), travels all the way around the A pillar and roof, continuing along the rear quarter window and ending at the bottom of the Hoffmeister kink at the lower back edge of the quarter window. 

 

Then there's a separate, smaller piece that begins at the bottom of the door's trailing edge (abutting the trailing edge of the sill door seal) and runs vertically on the B pillar's leading edge to where it meets the longer piece at the top of the B pillar.

Yes, what Mike S. said.

 

Where the pinch welt crosses over the B pillar, the bottom of the pw is cutout.

Les, thanks for the picture. Yes, these are the (pieces) I am looking for. I have seen the diagram Mike posted and just couldn’t place it inside the car and behind the weatherstripping. But, I never said I was smart.

And a final even smaller piece on the trailing edge of the B pillar from the quarter window sill up to the top of the pillar. Three pieces per side.

    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
