    Hi guys

    The horizontal strip that touches the window on the inside as the glass moves up and down.

    The smooth fur has worn and is left with rubber so it slows the window down and leaves vertical smear as the window goes up.

    Can this be replaced without removing the panel?

    Thanks for any help!!

    you may be surprised to see how easy it is to get the door card off...



    got to be easier that risking scratching or chipping the glass

    but... just out of interest can you find the silver trim strips on realoem? i could do with new ones but can't fathom out which section they're in...

    oooh... didn't realise it'd embed the video....

    Hi Blurk99

    cheers spoke to BMW and enquired about the parts and if i could do it without taking the card off, the lady said the parts are:

    B51.21.8.159.820 front inner mould £13.01+
    B51.21.8.159.258 front outer mould £13.83+

    then she went and asked a engineer who said, as you, you probably could just unclip the top of the card, and pull the strip upwards, so will order the bits and let you know,

    thanks for the reply and the link

    Regards

    Mudd
