advice - fitting trunk weatherstrip


Recommended Posts

The metro trunk weatherstrip has a complicated profile, so It's not clear what parts go under / over, can someone tell me which of these 3 options looks like the correct fit?

You almost have it right. That top lip of the weatherstrip in all 3 pictures has to tuck under the metal lip of the trunk channel. The top picture is the correct orientation, just tuck that lip on the right side of picture in and you should be good.

Joe, glad I asked, I though the 'double lip' on the top photos was the least likely setup, nice one.

James, the best thing I did yet was install the radiator drain plugs under the rear glass, I can't believe how it was just designed to hold water like that!

thanks for the tips!
