Older Benz owners - I found a great and inexpensive way of curing window seal leaks

Hey folks,

I wanted to share a method of solving those annoying window seal leaks without breaking the bank and having to buy new seals. Personally, I can't afford to spend a ton of money on buying all new seals for my W123 wagon, so I was looking for ways of aiding the life of my window seals.

I found the answer with "Aquaseal".

It's actually a product used for fixing holes in wetsuits! But it works perfectly. It's a little tube (cost me $9CAD from Mountain Equipment Coop in Canada - I'm sure US users you'll be able to find it easily. Perhaps REI?), and is quite easily to fix cracks in the seals.

The cured product is solid but flexible - and of course waterproof. I took my W123 through the local car wash to test it out - no more getting wet for me. I'm pretty happy to say the least!





I cut a thin, flat piece of plastic and then used a couple of hair clips to create a "mould" for the sealant to work its way into without draining too far. Worked a treat and took a few minutes.

Anyway, just wanted to share that. If you're having window leaks and don't want to spend too much I'd suggest trying it out

Thought you were going to say brake fluid. It does a great job with anything rubber.
