Does anyone have any pointers or tips on installing a rear window weatherstripping. I'm a little confused, dont see how the window clips fit in with this aftermarket rubber.

You can put them in first, but if your careful you can push them on afterward.
Are the little studs still there?


The biggest problem is getting the trim pushed on afterward...

jeffj,
thank you for the pointer , i got another one for you, how and the hell do you install the glass with the new rubber on it with adhesive without getting the glue all over the place? Now with the new rubber and window installed cant I just fill the gap between the molding and car body?

It's a real PITA. I hired an experienced professional who knows how to do old cars. Pick your battles...

No adhesive until its in then fill the gasket to body gap with the proper black goop (don't have the name handy) you don't need to glue the glass in the gasket and don't use silicone.

First put the new rubber in the house so it becomes room temp or by a heat source but not to long, then put the room temp rubber around the window, placement is critical then before you put it in the car body find a way to shrink the rubber by getting it cold, i did mine at night, and just started by working the bottom in first and then met in the top center, HOPE THIS HELPS
