Bulkhead to Windscreen Surround Seal

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to locate a new windscreen surround to bulkhead seal for a 96 Defender. 

I've now had 2 replacements seals, both of which have been too thin.

The original seal is ~8.5mm thick (left on the pic)

Both new seals are ~4.8mm thick.

The part number i'm ordering is FAJ100020. Neither have been genuine parts.

Has anybody else had similar trouble?

Now you have two, stick one on top of the other?

Not come across the problem myself though.

The foams not that queer expanding stuff is it ? I seem to remember window fitters using it

I've been in contact with SP Landrover who supplied one of the seals, this was the response.....

 

FAJ100020 has been superceded to the thinner LR055345 type

not too sure as to why as the gap between the top of the bulkhead and the windscreen frame is the same on all years,

we have sold a lot of them with no problem and i have personally fitted a lot of them from early c reg models to 08 puma models

However when fitting, because land rovers leak so badly even when new, i will stick the seal to the top of the bulkhead using the self adhesive back it comes with and then before fitting the windscreen frame on top, i run a bead of sealant along the top of the seal (such as tiger seal) so that you then have a good seal both top and bottom of the seal.
