Pillar Post Seals
READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU BEGIN INSTALLING PILLAR POST SEAL WEATHERSTRIP!

A) PREPARATION: Carefully remove the old seals from your car, using a release agent if necessary. Remove all old rubber pieces from the retainer channel, using a wire brush if necessary. Wipe clean.

 Watch out for the sharp edges! You may put a strip of masking tape down the sides to help prevent scratches.

B) LUBE UP: Using a clean rag, cover the entire strip with lubricant for easy installation and adjustment.

C) INSTALL BOTTOM END: Starting at the bottom (Figure 7A 7B), set and install the molded end, inserting new pins into holes. Apply a very tiny amount of glue to a clean spot (clean up any lubricant) on the back side of the end to help hold it in place.

D) COMPLETE INSTALLATION: After the bottom end is installed and all pins are in place, apply a small amount of waterbased lubricant to both the retainer channel and the back side of the seal. Now carefully pry the flange into the retainer channel using a hard squeegee (Figure 12B).

E) ADJUSTMENTS: The exact final length can be adjusted by pushing and compressing the rubber.

 The lubricant should allow the rubber to slide easily. Repeat this procedure for the other side.

F) ADD ADHESIVE: If the ends seem to slip, clean off any lubricant and then apply only a tiny amount of adhesive to help hold the ends.

A CUSTOM FIT! Your new seal is made from our great SUPERSoft sponge. It will adjust slightly in profile after a few days to provide excellent sealing qualities. This will be done while your window is compressed against the new seal.
