Rear quarter window seals

Unread post by solidute » October 29th, 2018, 10:08 pm

Can anyone point me to a supplier of new rubber seals for the rear side windows (or rear quarter windows depending on your terminology). Just pulled out the glass to deal with some rust and the rubber is in poor condition so don't want to reinstall it - unless i cant find replacements of course...

Evil bay isn't giving me any love so keen for some assistance.

Cheers

Genuine toyota $152.75 each... makes me cry.

Couldn't source aftermarket ones

Not exactly what you'll want to hear, but a while back (not too long ago) our local Jap-Wreck mob had those 80 Series rear 1/4 window rubbers for sale 'pre-owned' :crazy: I think they were asking about $90 each & apparently getting it - they certainly didn't advertise them for long!! :eek:

Haha yeah, the pre owned bit i didn't want to deal with as quality is already compromised. Just wished there was an aftermarket option out there, no crash repairer or window replacement mob could come up with anything so genuine it was - and i even knew the parts guy as i used to work with him.

Probably the last repair my poor old girl will get :cry:
