Thread: Door/window seal installation

  1. #11
    The wedge blocks were on the SWB cars. We use the 356 seals, slide right and closer to seals used originally.

    Per Ed Mayo's recommendation, I ordered the outer wiper seals for the doors on my 1970 coupe from International Merchantile, and they fit. The others did not.

    Now to find the proper replacement clips for the trim piece. The factory replacements do not fit in the channel of trim....too wide. Part number is 999-591-326-01. You can see the difference here. Original on the left. Again, the replacements offered through the dealership, is maybe for later model cars. Probably a 356 clip that works, but I have to find it...

    I just did this on my ‘69 restoration. If you are talking about the metal clip on the right, rotate it 90 degrees and the tabs should slide right into the trim. Apologize in advance if I don’t understand your issue and my answer doesn’t apply to your situation.

    HTH,

    I wish I had read this before I purchased my Porsche made seals. Even using pure Dawn soap this was a real PIA job.
