Door rubber seals

Everything that doesn't belong in the previous categories probably belongs here. Interiour (how are the seats mounted? how to remove the CEM?) and exteriour (how to replace the popup-lights shock absorbers or a door) are discussed here!

Door rubber seals

Post by balto8 » Wed Jan 23, 2019 12:41 pm

Anyone knows the correct size / shape of the door rubber seals.
Mine are done.

Would something like this do the job?

I Think it needs to be 32mm deep to give a decent seal, but that's basically the stuff. I'm currently looking to replace mine so let us know how you get on

Have found this seller at Amazon that sells this rubber seals for doors. The profile of this one is exactly ( give or take some milimeters) to the originals. He's been very helpfull and can arrange the rubber to be sold in the specific lenght required for our 480s ( of wich I'm no sure yet as I don't have the car at my place now). Could someone give us the correct lenght of rubber seal that would be needed?

I won't be buying it finally as I've got myself a set of new originals, but if I had not, this is the best choice around.
