    Quick question

    Do any of you know what I can buy to re seal the film inner seal on my drivers door? Sprung a small water leak, tried duck tape as quick fix |(not worked) going to order a new seal but not sure what to use or where to get the flexi glue type stuff? Not sure what it is some kind of mastic??

    Cheers

    There is no need for gluing or sticking bud, the seal has locator tabs which go into the door frame make sure they havent poped out. Once they are seated correctly it will seal perfectly .. trust me I have faced this issue on Helens car. Adjust the three rubber damper a few turn out.

    Lubricate the seals with shin-etsu or seal feeder it will make it moist and give it bounce.

    Get a picture of this area let me have a look, no need for all of the above you mentioned this is a Honda.:Wink:

    I think this is about sticking the clear film inside the door itself not the rubber seals round the edge of it.

    SayamaAccord is spot on it is the clear inner weather seal. Seems to have some sort of tacky/sticky bonding which has lost its bond at the base. No idea what this stuff is so any ideas on what and where to pick some up would be great?

    Many thanks

    Got my wires crossed yet again , you can use tiger seal its black in colour but very effective.

    I've heard of Renault door caulking or boot sealant (Renault Part no. 7701423330) being recommended.

    Sorry about that CJ...:Smile:...but these do seem to go sometimes on the Accord which maybe raises a question about the OEM sealant.

    I wonder what HH use for this job.

    Pass guys never had a issue ever on these on all my Honda's. The only reason why it happens is the sheeting is stretched or removed to get inside the door. Adhesive will last a life time provided the sheeting is not removed.

    Great stuff, got the gun and there is loads of this Tiger stuff on Ebay at these prices it is worth a bash to resael the old one. If it does not work I will get a new seal and try again, perhaps HH could sell me something.

    Cheers guys :Smile:

    Again thanks guys,

    I had a quick look again tonight and DEF coming in at the bottom right of the membrane. I had given it a clean and a make do fix with duck tape but with all the rain we have had water is finding it's way through. Wet patch on the floor this morning to. Trip out tomorrow to pick some of this stuff up me thinks.

    I will have a phone around and try and find a place that sells it. Plenty of motor factors down here. Good news is the membrane looks fully intact, no holes or damage but you can see where it is not seating any more on the factory glue and there is a water mark on the plastics on the inside of the car where the water has seeped in and run down.

    Thank for pointing me in the right direction guys :Smile:
