Thread: Vent window seal replacement

    Vent window seal replacement

    Hi,

    Has anyone replaced their vent window seals recently with URO or any other aftermarket brand? Are they any good? I can get them rapidly and for a small fraction of genuine seals.

    I understand non-genuine seals are usually a bad bet but looking for someone who actually tried these.

    Thanks

    I tried a set a couple years back and was very unimpressed.

    If you have not done this task previously you will learn quickly how difficult it is even with factory seals. Don't compound things by trying to save a few bucks on this particular set of seals (especially from URO). Having done nearly 20 sides of SWB vent rubbers I offer this advice with some confidence.

    Great feedback, thanks. This is what I was expecting to hear.

    I'm a buyer if you have one or both sides!

    I have a set 90154293123 and 3223. For 65-68. Problem is I can't determine if it is Nos.
    Obviously, priced differently

    Take no chance, price them as used and you can't go wrong!

    Is the rubber nice and soft? Bend, twist, fold and no cracks? Rubber mold release powder present? I have bought a few NOS rubber parts for my car and they all had some white powder caked on in spots.

    Yes, flex is critical. Old, stiff, factory are just as bad as ill-fitting, but flexible aftermarket. Again, in my experience.
