Hi Folks

 

I have just fitted some new door seals to my 13/60 herald saloon but now i can not shut the doors without giving them a good slam. I bought them from MEV spares. My question is are they the wronge ones,has anyone had the same problem as me and if so how did you cure it, i was thinking maybe i should have bought them from canley classics or rimmer brothers. Any help would be great cheers.

Are the rubber bits tubelike?

If so they are the same as supplied by many people. However, IIRC original ones have a lip. 

Bill at Rarebits is the man for all things Herald. may not be as cheap as ebay, but not much more. But he ONLY sells quality stuff, especially seals.

 

I doubt you can return them just because the are not original in style. You can knock the metal lip that the seals push onto back inwards a little using a hammer and bit of wood.

market does replecate the orininals the singl e flip/lipped seal takes the ballon out of the bubble seals most will purport to being 

correct,  fit Bills lipseal and door shuts will be a nice tolerable clunk not the wham bang slam   that many end up with.
