  • Quarter Window Seal

    Good Day All,

    I was going to order a set of Quarter Window seals for by Tbird and noticed They offered a rubber seal and Seal with metal insert, I went and had a look and it looks to have a metal insert, my question is to replace this seal do I have to pull the window and slide the metal up the slot or can I order a rubber seal only and glue it in place, unsure of what I should do, besides I have not removed a quarter window before and not sure if I want to get into that...yet

      Hey John,
      On Christine it looks like rubber pushes into the quarter window stainless steel trim. I pulled on mine just a little and it started to come out, pushed it right back in place. The only problem I see is that this rubber seal goes down into the rear fender. Therefore to do it correctly quarter window will have to be removed.
      You may want to wait and see if any of the other guys have tackled this job and how they done it!!!

        Thank You

        Yeah I kinda shy away from the finicky stuff and the window structure scares me lots, I love doing this kind of work but the nightmare I had learning to put in the electric motor in a quarter window was enough for me to ensure I fully know what I must prepare for before I start removing these windows ...grin

          Hey John,
          You will never learn unless you try! I had never taken a window out of a 1960 Thunderbird before either, Christine's was broke! I took it out ordered a new glass and put her back together and it works better than it did before. I gained allot of valuable information that I shared with other Squarebird members!!!
