Re: Run channel (window) weatherstrip install.
I called LMC to ask them if the stainless steel channel which the little plastic guide runs in, front and back, was actually included. They said no. Tell me they are and I will order one today.
Just to make matters real clear. It is the part INSIDE the rubber that seems to be a part needed to be RE-used. It is the same part held on by the small sheet metal screws.
As a hint for installation. The run channel rubber can be installed without the metal parts and I would do so the first time. Get an accurate place for the small screw location by comparing the metal guide to where it has to be reinserted into the rubber. There are small bendable tabs on this guide that should be bent straight to pull this metal guide out of old rubber and then the guide has to be reinstalled in the rubber. Make sure to be in exactly the right place before penetrating the new rubber with the tabs so that when you reinstall it the complete section and both guide strips, that the screw holes will line up.
Dont forget to lube the channel with something cause the windo will need it.
Yes, I did do one side and the only "guide I had was the front one. Should have done other side cause I have both "glide" guides for it. I still dont havre any idea as to correct name of this part.
Again, if your lmc product actually is complete with metal in the front and back to use for the glides to snap into, please write back.
