Mini Soft Top Convertible Cooper R52 R57 Roof Weather Seal Seals Trim Repair Kit
|Ebay Text 2|
SYMPTOMS OF FAULT
The rubber strip will become cracked and begin to flake away. You may notice a build up of dirt in the void underneath the top edge of the boot hatch. Depending on how serious the leak is, there may even be some rust beginning to develop from where water has leaked past the seal which meets the canvas roof. These seals also act as a form of soundproofing, when they deteriorate you might notice an increase in wind noise from inside the cabin.
The poor quality rubber allows leaks
The factory installed weather strips on these cars tend to perish and become cracked over time when exposed to sunlight and adverse weather conditions. This can result in water leaking behind the chrome trim and cause corrosion to form on the inside of the metal panels. The original Mini seals are made from a rubber which becomes hard and brittle over time, resulting in them failing.
Fit our unique design rubber seals and instantly improve the look of your MINI
We have developed our own profiled sealing strip designed to be fitted to your OEM chrome trims. Our seal enables you to renew the rubber seal on these chrome trims. Saving the vast expense of replacing the chrome trims, these are extremely expensive from BMW and used parts will have the same fault.
Our seal is unique in the market and designed specifically for this fitment. Uniquely our seal has a "skirt" to cover all of the original seal. Some suppliers supply just rubber to replace the top section of the OEM seal that fails, this does not address the issue of the rest of the seal looking bad. Our seal uniquely covers and replaces the original to provide a perfect finish.
Specially designed to apply pressure to the canvas seal, resulting in a tight seal to protect against water ingress.
Our seal replicates the original style of the factory seal, maintains the bead that runs along the length of the seal, meaning that your new seals will look as close as is possible to OEM seals.
Our seal uses VHB (Very High Bond) 3m adhesive tape to ensure a secure fit.
We supply this as a complete kit to renovate your chrome trims. We include replacement stainless steel screws to replace the original mild steel ones. Sanding sponge and alcohol wipes to prepare the surface.
