Anyone used the Vewib door seals made in Germany

Post by In2Rust » 21st August 2014 - 11:55pm

Looking at replacement rubber seals for the square. 71 model.

Seem to be a few to choose from and varying prices.

Has anyone tried the Vewib door seals? Or can recommend which to buy.

ISP
Vewib
WestcoastMetric

They look to be grey and original were black. I am after quality as the car is a keeper.

The originals were actually grey - they had stuff like talcum powder on them (which actually preserves the rubber). When that gets washed off, they go black.

I can't see any listed on Vewib (? VW emporium) site. ISP looks out of stock.

Not sure on the seals, but the genuine steering coupling I bought last week came in Vewib packaging and was a pukka VW/Audi badged item, not sure if the seals will be too?
