Rear Door Lock Seal


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

In the process of changing the lock barrel on the rear door lock of my Defender 110 SW. Planning on replacing the lock seal on the refit as the original has become quite thin and tacky.

The replacement door seal ordered (genuine OEM part - MXC9455) does not appear to be the correct size. The attached image shows that the holes for the retaining bolts do not match between lock body and seal. It can be stretched somewhat to fit. However, seems odd to have to do this.

Thoughts?

Simon...

how does it sit if you flip the seal over ? so the uper surface in your photo sits on the lock mechanism

If you get stuck you can always make a gasket ..

I found those door lock seals to be a bit thin anyway, the handle rubbed on the frame opening. I am sure they used to be cork at one time but that might be my memory playing tricks.

I cut some out of some 2mm nylon sheet and punched the holes.
