Information - Window Seal

Car body moldings are horizontal or slightly inclined elongated elements of the car`s exterior design. Moldings are used to highlight any line of the body, to add swiftness and proportionality.

But their main purpose is to protect the body paint from minor injuries, bumps and scratches. Molding installation requires very little time, about 30 minutes, if doing it correctly. The most practical are broad and large moldings; they provide the best car body protection. Lately many motorists install moldings even on bumper corners. In order to mount some unusual moldings, it is necessary to make a few mounting holes in the car`s body. It is understandable that no car owner will agree to make additional holes in the back of his car. To avoid this, use a double-sided tape or special glue.

Many molding sets include a double-sided tape. Many cars are already provided with necessary space for molding in the form of swells or recessions. But there are cars with incorrectly chosen molding areas; consequently they will poorly protect the body finish. In this case you will have to find at the bottom of the door the most convex place and fix the molding in that place. If you have used an adhesive tape to fix the molding you can safely drive on right after you`re done, but if you have used silicone adhesive you will have to wait until it dries - about 20-30 minutes.

You can acquire moldings for your car in our online store. We have affordable prices and short delivery times. Apart from moldings, you can also purchase other spare parts, like dampers, flywheels, automatic voltage regulators or trunk lids.

What you should know about glass rubber seals: service life, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

Glass rubber seals for cars have no specific lifetime limits. Replacement is performed if the component is broken down. This can be determined by its operation efficiency. If the car cabin heats poorly while heater is turned on or doesn’t cool down while air-conditioner is on, the problem may consist in seals condition. Appearance of moisture in the passenger compartment during rain or snow also indicates that these parts became unusable.

First of all, defectiveness of the glass rubber seals can be detected visually. If the seal has ruptures, it should be replaced. Also, it happens that the parts deform in course of time or lose elasticity, and because of that adhere loosely. In this case they should be replaced too.

Demount door trimming before installation of new seals. Then, remove an old part by pulling the seal end, to make it leave its mounting seat. Use a screwdriver to pry its edge up. After demounting of the old seals, hold a new part to the slot, fix one of its sides in the corner, connecting it with grooves, and then gradually put all the rubber into the slot. After mounting, check reliability of the fastening, and install door trimming back to its place.
