Inner gutter weatherstrip (Saloon, Hatchback and Estate models) - removal and refitting

Removal
1 Open both the front and rear doors to expose the relevant weatherstrip.

2 Carefully pull the weatherstrip from the base of the front pillar, taking care to release the flap which is stuck to the pillar with adhesive.

3 Pull the remainder of the weatherstrip from its flange.

4 Carefully clean the old adhesive from the base of the front pillar using methylated spirits.

Refitting
5 Commence refitting by pushing the weatherstrip onto its flange at the top corner of the rear pillar, running it for approximately 200 mm (8.0 in) along the horizontal flange.

6 Align the flap on the front pillar, and apply a thin bead of rubber-based adhesive to the flap. Refit the flap to the front pillar, ensuring that it lies naturally. Should the flap not lie naturally, or start to lift, temporarily secure it in position with adhesive tape.

7 Refit the remainder of the weatherstrip, starting at the front pillar and working rearwards, then close the doors and allow the adhesive to dry for at least an hour.
