Rear side window seal


Can anyone advise the correct trim for the seal for the rear side windows?

Woolies reference number would be great (if available) as I'll be ordering the front and rear screen seals shortly and I'd like to get it all at once.

The search button is my friend.

Woolies 138-BLK

BUT.

From Woolies page:- 'Will not fit onto fibreglass edge.'

True or not?

Well, it fitted OK on my Phase 2 and the Warwick. The GRP is usually pretty thin here, and most of the time the Windows are latched, so it can't fall off.I

Just out of curiosity, did you fit the trim in 1 or 2 parts?
The bottom rear corner is pretty tight. Does the trim fit round it or am I better to cut in a chamfered corner?

I have two seperarate peices, the vertical bit at the front, and a second bit that goes round and back. I didn't use any gloo.

Yes it's a pain to get it round the rear corner, but if you have a joint there it will come undone.

Now I'm confused.

I was under the impression that the seal only ran round three edges. Top, bottom and down around the back.

I thought the hinge formed the seal down the front edge. If a seal runs down there, ehat does it fit on?

The hinge won't seal on its own, and the rubber seal is used to hold the door and door pillar lining trim in place.

Glue and tension the headlining first!

Photos are not terribly clear.

If you use the C shaped trim for the doors, they will close rather than bouncing off the rubber.  Woolies 265a.

The tool to insert the chrome trim in the screen rubber is almost essential. Tool No 150

Thats significantly different from my P1 Frank but thank you for posting.

The P1 (at least mine) has a weird vinyl covered alloy U section running up the A pillar, along and above the door and rear side window and then down the C pillar. This acts as a cover between the headlining (which doesn't go into either the door or rear side window seal) and the door/window seal. Mine was held in place by self tappers and cup washers.

I'll have another look at the B pillars which are off the car atm to see if there is a lip onto which the window seal can be fitted.

I think some of the confusion lies in that the Phase 1 had a finishing panel that runs the total length of the roof inside it.

It starts at the bottom of the C panel, goes all the way along the side and ends (I think) at the bottom of the of the A pillar...cant remember exactly as mine were folded up so much by the last owner (butcher) that I decided if I could 

make and fit a head lining without this trim, I would....and I did. Although this trim does allow you to have an interior light over the B pillar.

It is a very thin panel made from ali and screwed on with chrome cups and screws. You can just see it in these pics...which also show some of the widow seal trim.

i have fitted seal/trim all the way round, not sure of the profile but will go check if you want me to Mike. Pretty sure I didn't curl it round on in the corners as it would create a bulge etc in the rubber.

pretty sure I super glued the corners?

And dont complain about having to stand on your head to look at these pics, I have tried everything and they just keep attaching themselves upside down!

Thanks, Nigel. Hope the holiday went well. Self Isolating for 14 days?

I still have the ali panels that fit round the doors/window and intend to re-use them. The only thing I can't remember is whether the ali panel sits inside the door and window seal (I think it's thin enough to do so) or over it.

Looking at your pictures, it would appear to sit inside the trim. Correct??

 

Ps. Have ordered 138 blk from Woolies

Hi Mike,

Nigel mentioning the interior of Stuarts car reminded me of the pics I took of this car back in 2006.

Hope these help?

I have more pics of this car if needed.

Erik, you're an absolute star. I've just asked Nigel if he has any more. As I explained to him, my old laptop packed up recently and I lost all my data including the pre-strip down pics of the Peerless. They were originally actual photos but I scanned them all and have no idea where they are now.

If you have any more interior shots, I'd really appreciate copies. You have my email if you want to send that way rather than take up space on this site.
