Looks good Steve. Is it just fitted on the left edge of the quarter light ?

Yes, just trailing edge. The rubbers didn't make much contact with the glass. I put some 2" masking tape over to try to ascertain what the cause was and that worked but looked ugly, obviously :lol:

This doesn't notice as all the rubbers are black too. Clear plastic was also an option......

Another great idea from the man, putting up with the whistle from the windows or opening them up to get cold and wet, hope it works on our van.

You never know!

It must be a fault/design flaw with the rear rubbers I think

Pleased to say that the bus is transformed by having no wind whistle :cheers:

The downside is I can now hear the Sheila :D 8O :blackeye: :blackeye: :blackeye:

No cup of tea for you. I shall make one for Coops though because he is being perfectly pleasant.

They should not whistle it's just the repro seals are poor. With age they should get better mine whistle for 6months and then stopped , looking at the og ones still in Leah's bus they fit perfectly
Fixing VWs in my sleep, im not the only one right?
