Windscreen seals and trims


Hi Folks,

Looking for help - can anyone tell me the part numbers to order windscreen seal and the matching silver filler strip from Woolies?  Our seals seem OK, but the trim strips have gone black, so I want to replace those and may get some seal material at the same time, just in case...

Thank you!

Nick

I'm sure I used R606-358 last time, but Woolies website has changed.
You used to be able to buy the chrome strip separately.

It's useful to bed the rubber seal in Polyeurathane adhesive

It stops leaks back under the headlining, which is retained by the seal.

It's also useful as a gap-filler, because screens are all exactly the same size,
unlike the hole that you are fitting it in!

And the special tool for fitting the chrome strip makes it a doddle.

Mine came with the black rubber filler strip rather than the chrome one and I'm fairly certain it had been there since it was first installed. Is this just another Peerless 'what we have lying around at the moment' issue or was there a standard?

Frank,

Thanks very much; I'm sure that will do the trick.  The seals themselves are only about 5 years old and in good shape, but the trims have gone dark and don't look very nice!

Mike, I don't know if there was a standard.  Our car had previously been rebuilt when we bought it, and it came with 'chrome' fillers, so I suspect they were not the originals.  

Best,

Nick

Don't do what I did and use far too much washing up liquid to persuade the screen into the seal. It was all fine until it rained heavily and then the inside of the car started to fill with bubbles while I was driving along. It's nice till one pops and goes in your eye where upon your eye stings like a ba@@##$rd and you can't see where you're going any more...

As regards filler strip I've only ever seen black or white used on originals depending on body colour I think... But like you say it probably depended on what was on the shelf at the time. I think my white Warwick (now Celia's V8) had white filler strip.

You crack on with your fancy chrome stuff though you flash blighters!
