Installing Convertible hood to windscreen frame seal


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Triumph Herald 1200 1966

I need to fit the weather seal to the convertible hood that mates with the top of the windscreen frame upon closure.I understand how it needs to fit but cannot for the life of me figure out how to do it. It keeps popping out.

is there a technique for getting the seal to pop under the edges of the channel that it is sits in.

hope this makes sense.

thanks in anticipation of your collective pearls of wisdom in respect of installing seals.

I sit one side in the groove and then work along the other side with a screw driver blade, tucking the seal into the groove.  Sounds horrendous but actually quite quick and easy once you get the knack.  Prone to coming out again if you stop half way - so don't!
