Default Ripped door seal...

On the drivers door, about head height (when sitting down), there seems to be a tear in the rubber of the seal. It's only about five or six centimetres long, but that's just enough to allow a lot of external noise in, and allow a draft to creep in at speeds above about 40mph.

Anyone know of any way of repairing it, or failing that, somewhere that supplies the part?

Oh, and just to make things interesting, I'm in Blighty, so all these wonderful stores I keep looking at in California aren't much use....

Rooney,

If all the rubber is there (no missing gaps) just pop down to Halford's and pick up some rubber glue to put the seal back together. Failing that, you might end up going to a dealer to buy the whole strip around the door to replace what you have. Have you tried a breakers yard to see if there's any wrecked PT's for spare parts?

Ahhh, rubber glue! What a jolly good idea! Cheers, I'll try that first.

I've had a look around, but the only breakers with a wrecked PT at the moment is miles away. Fingers crossed the glue works.

Thanks again Crewzin!

OH!
Guess I'm too late. I was going to suggest gluing it shut!

Well, i got some snazzy looking glue, put it on, covered the whole thing in tape (so that I didn't glue the door shut!), and left it to set.

Carefully removed the tape about an hour later, and although it's not the prettiest of repairs, it'll do until I can replace the seal.

My first real repair on my cruiser I feel so proud.
