Installation Guide for Roof Rail Weatherstrips

READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU BEGIN INSTALLING ROOF RAIL WEATHERSTRIP!

FOR HARDTOPS:

Old roof rail weatherstripping seals become brittle and cracked as they are constantly exposed to the weather. This deterioration allows rain and wind to reach your interior. By replacing old seals, you can keep out the elements, add a touch of class to your car and you will have a much quieter ride.

GENERAL HINTS:

Always start at the front when removing and installing weatherstrip. Place a tiny bit of adhesive in the channel, not on the weatherstrip.

A) PREPARATION:

Remove the old strip, in one piece if possible, by extracting the black plastic anchor pins or screws at the molded end using a side cutter or screwdriver. Pull the rubber away from the channel, using a release agent to remove old glue if necessary. Clean and scrape the channel with a small wire brush, using masking tape to avoid scratching any surfaces.

B) START AT THE FRONT:

Starting at the front (see Figure 12A), install the black plastic anchor pins or screws in the molded end, putting a tiny bit of adhesive in the channel.

C) INSTALL SEAL:

Insert the main section into the channel, working your way from the front to the back, using a hard plastic or rubber squeegee to lock the rubber into the edges of the channel (see Figure 12B).

D) TUCK AWAY:

Work your way to the end of the channel. Leave about two inches of excess rubber, using a knife to cut off the rest. Tuck those excess tow inches into the roof and quarter panel area.

On models with two molded ends, work your way to the back and install the pins or screws, and you're done.
