Re: Rear screen seal replacement

Hello Alec
I did think you don,t use mastic etc as I fitted one years ago and don,t remember making a mess...
How do you push from the outside whilst pulling the string on the inside,that sound abit tricky?
Is it just a case of pushing it out from inside with my feet,carefully.

Rear screen seal replacement

Any tips to the best way to remove the rear screen and replace with a new seal,do I cut the old seal to get the screen out or just push from inside,do I just replace the seal and refit what mastic if any etc and is it a case of refitting using the old string/2 man jobbie.

Re: Front windscreen

So I managed to fit the screen trims and I can safely say I have removed 2000 engines in quicker time....
It was a real pain but I carried on and got there,many hours later.

Re: Front windscreen

I would gladly BUY the tool from you straight away if you can make one up?
Only problem is I plan to try and fit these trims ASAP,maybe a good offer might help producing one quickly?

Re: Front windscreen

Got to fit the trim to my car,the seal has been replaced but not the trim,looks like you could use string in the trim slot and then pull directly away from the trim for example at the top pull the string towards the roof etc,would this work?
