    Hi

    Just brought a 1998 Z3 1.9 wondered if you can help? The roof seal (the rubber seal that runs up the A pillars and across the top of the windscreen[​IMG] has perished.

    I have managed to locate one from a scrap dealer[​IMG] - this one has some sort of adhesive on it on the underside.

    Can anyone advise if it need to apply some sort of adhesive/gunk to the seal before I fit it and if so what?

    I presume it shouldn't be something too strong as I wouldn't be able to remove the seal in the future!

    Any help appreciated!

    sorry ignore the how to guide icon - my post is a "how can I" question - I'm new to the site and seem to have posted incorrectly!:(

    I would imagine if it was stuck on it would be a general contact adhesive, cannot find anything in the online TIS though
