Sealing Rear Door Glass

Recommended Posts

So, with a new rear door coming my thoughts turn to how to seal the old type rear door glass now that dum-dum is no more.

What are people using now ? Is there something that won't dry out and fall out like dum-dum does ?

If i may add to this, the item listed is a butyl strip with adhesive added to allow the glass to stick to it.

 

If you visit a builders merchants, or B&Q, Screwfix then you could pick up some flash band which is a similar product and has added benefits around the vehicle other than windows ( it's wider than the strip ).

 

I use flash band on the bodywork at the base of doors to protect from standing water over time as these areas become prone to water ingress.

 

Just a thought :)

Pretty sure I stuck mine in with a generous bead of RTV, probably because I had some to hand, and it's good stuff.
