Rear Window Seal AUII XR

After spending a good hour and a half washing my baby today, only to get the thing covered in bugs on the highway, i noticed that the rear window seal (the bit of rubber on the outside anyway) on the left hand side of the join is coming off. Has anyone else had this happen? What do you guys think would be the best way to fix it? Thanks.

I have seen this on a few AU Falcons. Luckily mine seems fine. When you say yours has come off is it the part thats at the top of the rear window where it joins to the rear door opening or is it the part near the boot.

If the rubber seal isn't destorted it should just slide back in place and perhaps us abit of electrical tape around the window edge to stop it from comming off again.

I should have been a little more specific... its actually on the outside of the bottom of the back window just above the boot lid. I can push it back on but it just comes back off again within a few seconds....I've attached a jpg showing exactly where the problem is (but it isnt in any great detail!).

I would try using abit of thin double sided tape (i have the stuff at home can't remember the brand but it's available from auto one) and stick in to the edge of the window where the seal sits on. Push the seal firmly on it. I should work though you may have to experiment abit.

BTW love your car. :s6: :s6:

i think you will find that the dealers were replacing the rear windows on the AU's under warranty for this exact problem. If your cars are still under warranty I would quiz the dealers! One thing you have to watch for is if the seal isn't inplace you might be able to spray water into the rear parcelshelf as the sealant that holds the window in place might not meet. Just something that I have seen with the seal not in place!!!

Thanx. One day after reading this post the rubber surround on the rear screen of my AU1 XR6 has come adrift..... What did the dealer advise?

had mine replaced under warranty and quess what ?? already come adrift again. a little smear of clear silicone inside of the rubber and pushed back on the glass fixed the problem. want something done right do it yourself.
