Is this tear is vent window rubber fixable?
« on: June 20, 2013, 05:10:53 PM »
I have had these since vent seals since buying my car back in '98.  The previous owner bought them to replace the current ones on the car now.

As I was taking something off the shelf in my garage it hooked itself on to this vent rubber and caused about a 1/2" tear to the top corner.

Is this still useable and/or repairable?  I would want to install them only to find out they will leak water or air later on

Also, is any one able to tell if this is NOS or an aftermarket replacement?

A dab of 3M Weatherstrip Adhesive (black) should hold it together - that stuff sticks to anything, great bond when it cures out. I patched my door window weatherstrip on the Z11 (top corner of windshield when it dry rotted and fell off, still there after 10 years or better.

Great idea! Never thought of that 3M stuff. Will give it a try
