Another URO Victim

Like other posters I installed a new URO seal on my back window and the trim just won't lock in. After quite a lot of frustration I decided to put down the hammer and walk away. The window doesn't leak but there is no trim. I'm going to buy a genuine MB window seal and do it again correctly.

I did order the tube of genuine MB window sealant from the dealer but have not applied it yet. It was around $25 if I remember correctly. I don't know how that compares to the price of other tubes of sealing material. Even though an adhesive sealant will make future window replacements quite difficult I don't think most of our cars will be around long enough to need a new seal again unless the window is broken.
