Very easy to do, pull off old seal then feed on the new seal. All this build up inhibits the windows from sliding and the materials just do not hold up in a moist environment. If your windows slide easily when the latch is released and you are using the same kind of window channels for the replacement, you can skip this step and keep the latches attached to the window panes. The three screws on each channel should hold the channel in place quite well. Not badly priced, a I could get 8 metres of seal delivered for £45.
If you have cut drain notches in the bottom end of one of the channels to aid draining, the notches should be to the outside. It just sits into a hole on top and can easily fall out. So what I did was take a file and filed the bottom of the sideways U to about a 10 degree angle downward towards the outside. I'm not pointing the pressure washer at it , I just noticed it when I was washing the car and when I looked closer there are water marks on the load cover. Carefully release water shedder from door. The top channels, side channels and windows should come out together.
When it is mounted over the drip tray it should be centered so that water can flow out the channel ends into the drip pan. If the wind is in the right direction, or , as I found out yesterday, you are jet-washing it off, water runs past the seal and ends up on the rear load cover. Fit inner and outer waist seal and secure with clips. Why don't we show the price? I noticed that they bind if you do not get the angle between both parts just right. After a few months of frustration I decided to beef up the door seals by reinforcing the rubber.
These units run on an inline five-cylinder engine that could still provide the same off-road capability as the Defender. My pilot mates are in and out of Oz quite a bit. As for the front door, It's goot to know that the top and bottom are separate. You can remove the windows with just the top and side channels free then free up the bottom channel with the windows removed. The top channel takes up the entire length of the window frame. One of the pins was a tight enough fit in its hole that it wanted to hang up.
But it will look nicer and your rear interior will be dryer. News, pics of your Land Rover, etc. Unfortunately I can't remember the name. Cheers just thought I would post up what Ihave done, incase anyone else searches for this same topic. The new model was based on the chassis and drivetrain of the more upmarket Range Rover, but with a lower price aimed at a larger market segment and intended to compete with Japanese offerings. I am sure they said it was a part available from Land Rover Oz.
The latch makes a sideways 'U' shape. If you are using adhesive and screws, secure the rear vertical channel in place with two screws. © 1997, 2001, 2017 TeriAnn Wakeman. It should be centered in the window frame. You do not need the aluminum spacer that is used with the stock channels on the rear side of the window.
We operate over 50,000 square feet of warehouse space at two warehouse locations on both the East and West coast. The side channel needs to fit the space between the top and bottom channels. By ensuring we follow manufacturer advertising guidelines, AutoPartsWarehouse. This is a good place to interrupt the project if you are painting the hard top. After cutting the channels I suggest making a trial fit of all the channels together with the glass to assure that everything fits properly. It's not only the performance that the Discovery has going for it.
I keep wondering what other nifty solutions they have secreted away that you have to ask for before they will tell you they have it. Never seen a pool of water on there, but it must only be when the wind blows against the back of the car! Despite some downsides, ride quality could be experienced both during off-road and high-speed driving; the road clearance of the units could be adjusted for better handling. They roughly divide the vertical channels into thirds. Two of the six channels supplied with the kit get cut down to become the side channels. And the important word here is stock. Time will tell how wise a choice that is. I've been back on the highway, no noise.
