REPLACEMENT OF VENT WINDOW RUBBER SEAL

THE VENT WINDOW RUBBER COMES IN TWO PARTS PER SIDE. THE SOFT RUBBER IS NOT A PROBLEM TO INSTALL WITH THE VENT ASSEMBLY OUT OF THE CAR. THE HARD RUBBER VERTICAL STRIP IS ANOTHER MATTER. THE “TAB” INSTALL ON THE STRIP MUST BE INSTALLED WITH THE CHANNEL OUT OF THE CHANNEL FRAME. IT IS QUITE IMPOSSIBLE TO SLIDE THE NEW TABS IN AND BEND THEM CORRECTLY WITHOUT DISSEMBLING THE UNIT. MOST OF THESE CHANNELS ARE RUSTED TIGHT AND CANNOT BE EASILY REMOVED WITHOUT DAMAGE TO EITHER THE STAINLESS STEEL FRAME OR THE CHANNEL.

GETTING READY
REMOVE INNER DOOR TRIM PANELS.
DISCONNECT THE VENT WINDOW ASSEMBLY.
A. TWO 7/16 SCREWS FRONT OF DOOR.
B. SEVERAL PHILLIPS SCREWS ON FRONT OF VENT POST.
C. SCREW BELOW VENT WINDOW HANDLE.

LIFT OUT CHROME COVER TRIM PIECE.
REMOVE ADJUSTMENT NUT IN INNER DOOR PANEL AT BOTTOM.
ROLL DOWN DOOR GLASS ½ WAY, TILT VENT ASSEMBLY FORWARD AND LIFT IT OUT OF THE DOOR.
CLEAR OFF A WORKBENCH. A VISE WILL BEA GREAT HELP.

VENT WINDOW RUBBER INSTALL
DRILL OUT THE TWO RIVETS HOLDING THE VENT HINGE.
UNSCREW THE PIVOT NUT; REMOVE SPRING AND STOP TAB. NOTE THE POSITION OF THE TAB, YOU’LL NEED TO KNOW!
DRILL OUT THE BRASS RIVET IN THE RUBBER UNDER THE VENT HANDLE (MAY NOT BE NECESSARY IN ALL DESIGNS).
PULL OLD SEAL OUT AND CLEAN THE CHANNEL.
SOFTEN RUBBER BY SOAKING IN WARM WATER. DRY WELL AND APPLY LUBRICANT TO CHANNEL AND/OR RUBBER CHANNEL.
STARTING IN THE SHARP ANGLE, PRESS RUBBER IN THE CHANNEL USING A DULL SCREWDRIVER TO FORCE THE FIT.
WHEN YOU ARE SURE IT FITS, REPLACE RIVET AT BOTTOM. DO NOT REPLACE HINGE RIVETS YET.

VENT WINDOW VERTICAL SEAL INSTALL
BE SURE YOU WANT TO DO THIS.
DRILL OUT POP-RIVETS AT BOTTOM AND TOP OF CHANNEL AND ANY OTHERS IN CHANNEL (ASSEMBLIES DIFFER SLIGHTLY).
REMOVE FUZZIE CHANNEL FROM VENT FRAME. IF IT WILL NOT COME OUT … YOU NEED TO MAKE A DECISION. IT IS NOT TOO LATE NOW TO PUT THE RIVETS BACK AND FORGET IT.
IF YOU GOT IT OUT, SLIDE OUT OLD HARD RUBBER AND INSTALL NEW ONE. BE SURE TO BEND TABS IN SAME DIRECTION AS OLD.
REPLACE RIVETS YOU DRILLED OUT AND REASSEMBLE TO FRAME. CAUTION: RESIST TEMPTATION TO RIVET THROUGH STRIP!
REPLACE VENT GLASS IN FRAME, INSTALL STOP TAB AND SPRING.
CLOSE WINDOW AND CHECK FIT, THEN … RIVET HINGE IN PLACE.
