Am having to replace a door seal on a 1007 - that's the one with the sliding doors. The seal is the one around the actual frame of the car, not on the door itself. Any tips or things to look out for? Would really appreciate any help. There seems to be a particular problem as regards the retaining bar that connects the door to the door frame. Cheers.

it looks like a standard seal that's a push on fit job - make a note of where the join is

Most door seals just pull off and push on. Although i dont know that particular one.

As above, note the join position, and replace it with the join in the same place.

Start off on a straight bit, ease it onto the metal lipp, and push it right home with the bottom of your hand...carefully ease it around the corners, and pushing it right home on the corner before starting the next straighter section.

If you need to cut the new one to length, be conservative, you can always trim a bit more off....
If you en up being slightly short, ease it away from the corner slightly to save a few mm of it here and there.
