Door seals

Postby djwazza68 » Thu 06.02.2020, 08:15

The seals on my doors aren't marvellous, so I'm going to replace them with rubber items. Does anyone have a good idea of which donor seals are most effective as a replacement? I will probably end up doing a cut and glue job with several pieces I have from various cars, but if there is a simple cheap option I'd be keen to know it.

Thanks in advance.

Yep - I followed Jamies advice and used the FTO seals - a bit of fettling required around the end where the door lock is, but otherwise quite a straightforward fit.

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

What is the best source of these seals? Not available in the USA though as car was never sold here.
