I have a 1983 300sd nice car needs work ,paint ,window seal,lever bushings,antenna mast, and still better than buying a new used car.what I need to know is the apa part from fastlane is as good as the one from the dealer I live in ct so the price is high 140.00 for rear window seal at greenwich ct benz dealer....don,t know how much at fairfield ct dealer. I just would like to know be for calling payless glass on tuesday to fit front and rear glass....and then go to finnishmaster and match paint then have full service done to car by a indy.......my car has 97734...on it but has bad paint fade and I think It needs a muffler. thanks

The parts on FastLane are usually either OEM or OEM supplier, and just as good. The window gasket must be a one piece molding -- if it has been glued together, it will leak.

I can't say enough about having good rubber installed around the rear glass. I had the seal replaced on my SD, and it made a great improvement. No more puddles in the back seat foot wells!

I'm VERY glad that I didn't try to replace it myself, though. I'll try just about anything, but that was one of those things where I was glad to watch a reputable glass shop do it, and enjoy the product of their experience. Even they fought with this, and they'd done MB's before...

window seal

Thanks guys just wanted to to check in with the forum and get your thoughts. I was thinking about getting a used 300 touring 2006 ,but there is nothing like seeing a 80s to 91 126 benz rolling down the street peace!

Inter auto parts here in San Diego had the OEM seal for 50 bucks. I would never make the mistake of trying to put one in myself again though. It is not fun and I cracked the original window, but luckily had a spare.

Just looked them up and they seem to have a massive 34 item product line available. All some form of motor additive.

Give them a call, they don't really have an online store but they'll ship stuff to you.

If I remember correctly, Inter Auto Parts has more, but they don't list most online. Might just be a cost effectiveness thing for them, who knows. Call/email 'em?

I've only bought DP from them, didn't find anywhere cheaper on it. I bought my rear window seal from ebay, someone bought two.
