Default What part is this window seal and why is mine messed up?

Still (slowly) working on the smelly 1994 R-package. Sorting out the various little drips and leaks around the windows after the soft-top replacement.

This looks wrong:





I'm having a hard time figuring out what this seals are and how to replace them. Searching brings up a million references to the 3 big seals that go around the roll-up windows, nothing about the triangle window seals.

You got something missing. HT shown, but it's a 1994.

No idea what it's called, sorry.

The part should start at the bottom front of the window and wind all the way around the door to above the latch area in the back of the door.

Subscribed. This part on my driver's side is starting to split.

I might have an old spare laying around from the parts car if you are trying to avoid buying new. Not the greatest shape but sure as **** better than that!

I'll give yah a good deal. I'll send you a PM tomorrow. I need to dig it up. I have like 6 tupperware boxes full of *****.

Now you know why I didn't replace them when I restored my car. I looked at the price and said, "**** that" and closed the tab.

I just stripped a door down to bare metal, so I have one on-hand. Mine is just one big *** seal. It wraps around the door and attaches to a bunch of little plastic cleats.


Just inside the little triangle part, the seal screws into the window frame.

It is always the one thing you don't have. Tore through all my boxes and I only have the passenger side door seal. IF that is what you need, great....but from the picture it looks like you need the drivers side, and sadly, they aren't interchangeable. Let me know if you want the passenger side or not. Sorry man, I was really hoping to help you avoid paying very much.

Check that, looks like Monk has his available to you? Monk definitely check it is the right side before/if you ship it.

If your trunk/windshield seals are bad, I have those too if needed.

Someone else called dibs, but if he doesn't want it, then it may be available. Yes, it is the driver side.
