1985 rear sliding window gasket
« on: May 10, 2020, 01:09:32 pm »
I did look around your site and others for answer to my question, I have had no luck. I bought a factory sliding rear window and I need a new seal to install slider. Some people say you can use the fixed glass seal, is that correct? Or do I need a seal designed just for the slider? And last question where is a god place to purchase?

                                                                  Thank you

    I used a fixed glass seal from a junkyard truck on a factory rear slider (also from the junkyard) in my 83 W-150. Worked just fine.
    Lots of places sell the seal. Rockauto has one for $63 but it all black not the style with the chrome locking trim.

    It depends on the design of the window frame.  Some use a special gasket, others do not.

    l,m gonna say usually if it takes a special gasket it comes with it , other wise you just use the old one = if you didnt cut it to get it out //  also look up the "rope trick" to install it

    Thank you for responding to my question. I did find that my factory rear sliding window has a specific seal. The frame thickness  requires more space than standard glass. I wanted to share the supplier and manufacture P.N. I found the seal @ A1 Automotive - Precision 1 AWSX00556.

                                                                 Thanks

    Hello, when I ordered a new seal for the sliding window the supplier told me they had the wider factory seal. Sadly when the seal came it was wrong.It was the narrow stock flat glass seal,this will work on some sliding windows.but not the wide channel style. I think as someone mentioned I will need to find one in a bone yard and simply reinstall it. Thanks to all that had input.
