Have You checked for lateral movement on the top arms?/ what state are Your th...

Re: Re-Fitting glass with new seals.

Evo-Stik impact - Either aerosol or in a tube- Aerosol is easiest.
Look out for the Blue packaging, which is repositionable but not sure it's available in an aerosol.
The normal stuff is Red packaging

Re: Re-Fitting glass with new seals.

Seal onto Glass, then trim into seal (but not the joining piece) Then glass/seal/Trim into Body aperture.
You shouldn't need any lubricant, just a hefty mate if poss & a nice warm day
Where did You get the seal? if it's one of Simons You shouldn't have any problems
Joining piece gets inserted last.
