In Reply to: Rear Window Guides-any knowledgeable folk? (long) posted by MicahO on August 02, 2001 at 13:01:12:

The rear window guides/seals for the Tourings are all in one big expensive ($150 +/-) piece of rubber. It covers the vertical and top horizontal sealing surfaces for the moveable window, as well as the seals for the fixed window. The piece also includes all of the exterior rubber around the windows. A very comprhensive chunk of rubber. I have one laying in my garage. Just talked to my body guy about putting it in for me. Not sure I have the patience to go through what Bentley says I must. Nuts and bolts are more my cup of tea.

The rear window guides on my Touring are shot - they spent too much time in Florida heat with the last owner and are smooshed and folded. They still seal, but only if I guide them closed with a finger.


I have some questions about the correct part numbers - In the ETK I see the top wraparound bit, number 6 on the diagram, as well as a vertical piece that may snap into it, number 7 on the diagram. I DO need both the top rubber/felt gasket and the vertical rear rubber/felt gasket replaced, but are these the correct parts? Part 6 might just be the exterior trim, and 7 might be an internal door part -

Has anyone replaced these before that can speak from experience?

Thanks in advance---
