Rear window seal
(West Palm Beach, Florida) | August 29th, 2020
My car is a 2004 C4S Cab. and the window seal was getting worn and beginning to let some water in. I then went to Suncoastparts. com and ordered the replacement seal for both sides. Very easy to install and only took about 10 minutes per side. The look is now better and the seal is perfect. I highly recommend replacing the seals.
Leaks and Looks
(Snohomish, WA USA) | March 5th, 2020
Pretty much no one pays any attention to the rubber trim on their vehicles. In the case of the rubber Rear Window (B-Pillar) Vertical Seal between the front and rear windows on 996 and 997 cabriolets, you cannot help but notice how shabby it looks as you reach to open your door. Not only that, but you'll also notice how it is starting to leak whenever you wash your car, or you actually drive it in the rain. Sometimes it can leak, not enough for you to notice, but more than enough to start pooling up water under your seats where the critical electronic components of your car live. Yet for 40 lousy bucks and about a half hour's labor, you can successfully and permanently replace these. (1) You open your cab top. (2) Next, you gently depress the microswitch for the cab top down with a no-mar plastic trim tool and balance the trim tool so that it holds the switch down. This switch lies in the top part of the hole where the cab top hook latches when it closes -- right above the center of your windshield. (3) Use another no-mar trim tool and your fingers to gently peel back the top of the old seal. It was glued down at the factory with just a drop at the top. (4) Flex back the horizontal trim at the bottom of the seal to reveal its hook-shaped bottom end. (5) grasp the old seal at the hooked bottom and firmly pull down. The trim should slide down its mounting channels and off the car completely. (6) Check the top of the channels clear out any leftover glue or rubber. (7) Install your new seal using the reverse of these steps. It can be helpful to spray the channels with a little soapy water first as a lubrication aid. Only do one side at a time so you can use the other side as a guide -- it can be a little tricky getting the inside edges of the new seal (in the back) to start properly in the grooves, and if you get it in wrong and leave it, the seal will certainly leak. (8) Place a single drop of super glue (I used Loctite 480 because it is black and works well with rubber) on the back side of the top end of the new seal and clamp in place until the glue completely sets up. Give it a full day, then test it out by washing your car. Properly installed, it will look very new, very black, and will seal better than your worn seal. It's not obvious to others why, but your car actually looks newer to the casual observer. Oh, and maybe it adds about 500 hp to its performance?
