I have removed & refitted glass to a number of cars in the past. Each one had a one piece endless rubber surround ie no joint
I have had to remove the front & rear screen to allow the car to be painted and find in both the front and rear screen rubbers there was a joint, ie 2 ends
Whilst cleaning things up I refitted the rubber to the screen having glued the two ends together, the rubber is too loose around the screen.
should the (now) endless rubber be a snug fit around the glass?
whilst looking at the Mini Spares site, I see they suggest when fitting " REMEMBER YOU MUST FIT THE RUBBER TO THE BODY FIRST. DO NOT USE THE STRING METHOD BECAUSE IT STRETCHES AND TEARS THE RUBBER" This is a new one to me, in the past all I have done is to fit the (endless) rubber surround to the glass then drop the glass & sealing rubber into the aperture and use a greased cord to pull the rubber edge over the lip.
Any advice would be appreciated
