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?
