Bad Rubber on Right Quarter Window


  • Old rubber molding gets hard, brittle and can crack.
  • The original rubber molding fit into a groove around the edge of the window frame
  • This window added to the noise of the car because loose pieces would vibrate in synchronization with the engine above 3400 RPM. Sometimes it made the engine shriek as though the generator bearings were about to fail.
  • The rubber was so brittle you could break off pieces by bending with your fingers.
