Series 2a door seals


Recommended Posts

So last weekend I set about fitting new door seals, got both doors off and the old perished seals off, got the new ones fitted doors back on and then could i shut them, jeez it was like id fitted solid steel seals. I had to put all of my weight and more into it. Now concerned that opening the doors this weekend to do nlre work means I'll be struggling to shut them again. 


Any tricks to soften the rubber up...

Just to confirm, from the Series 2 Club forum, this feature of these seals is often commented on.

Doesn't help much, but just confirming that your experience is not unusual.

Good. If we keep buying genuine, they might keep making them. 

Remarkable that we can still get a lot of parts genuine over 40 years after production stopped.
