Rear Window Rubber in 220 Cab B
« on: November 30, 2009, 05:43:53 AM »
Hi Everyone,
The rubber seal around my rear window in the fabric top needs to be replaced.  I have not removed anything yet because I'm not sure how it is attached to the fabric, so I thought it would be best to see if anyone has done this before?  I assume there is some sort of a structural frame that the window attaches to.  Is it wood or metal?  It almost looks like a small version of how the front windshield mounts.  Is it a similar process?  Jim Axman and I replaced my front rubber seal a few weeks ago so I've been through that.  Is this rear one similar?
Thanks for any information before I start this project later this winter.

It is the same design gasket as the front window except dimensionally smaller in cross section. The window consists of a wood frame with a metal plate overlaid on the inside.

Thanks Henry,  that sounds like it should be pretty obvious as I take it appart.  I assume the fabric is attached to the wood part of that frame so that it will all stay in place even with the window removed?

Yes, both the headliner and top should be tacked to the wood. The metal plate has holes for the tacks.

If I recall, Volker had some great pictures of the rear window frame when he replaced his top.  Do you still have the pictures Volker?  Unfortunately the pictures in the Technical Gallery were lost when the site crashed over a year ago.
