Remove front door seal

Note The sequences below describe the processes for removal and installation for the left side of the vehicle. The corresponding sequences for the right side are similar with the exception that, where applicable, the scope of the process is written by yourself.

  • Open the front door.
  • Partially remove the lower trim flush with the seal .

Take care not to damage the roof lining in the area where the seal joins the roof.

  • Clip out the door seal from the body flange.

Install front door seal


  • When being installed in the production, the seals are coated with a sealing mass, placed in the flange and then put in position using the press tool - T20098- .
  • On removing the seal, the sealant spreads onto the interior of the seal and the sides open slightly. When reinstalling, the tightness nor the correct seating of the seal can be guaranteed.

    Therefore each seal which is removed completely should be replaced by a so-called "tap-on" seal.

  • Before installation of the seal partially removed, press the sealing edges together.
  • Wear clean gloves in order to prevent dirt getting onto the roof trim during the removal.

- Temporarily place the seal on the bodywork flange. When doing so, keep in mind the following:

  • The vulcanised connection -arrow- of the seal must be centred between both hinges.

Front doors, door components, central locking

  • Start the installation on the upper diameter -3- of the body flange and then continue with the remaining sections.
  • If the seal is positioned correctly on the bodywork flange, press in the seal over the entire perimeter using the press tool - T20098- .
