Hi guys, currently have a problem with my door seals letting in water, back rears up at the top corners is the bit it leaks, but also the front passenger is also.

Anyone know if au/back ones fit since e series stuff will be obsolete etc.... real annoying car smelling yuck from carpet being wet and wanna fix it before I replace the carpet.

AU ones are a different shape, so no they wont fit.

Unfortunately it's a case of searching the wreckers for one that hasn't yet dried out in the sun.
I do remember seeing some store on Evil Bay that still had some available NOS, if I can find them again I'll give you the link.

Or it might be worth trying places like Clark Rubber, I know they do sell some automotive rubber products. But I don't know for sure if they sell door seal profile.

Good luck with your search.

uh bugger, may go to U-Pull-It again and see, kinda looks like the door could be not closing properly has the seal itself looks ok but when the door is closed the seal doesn't seam and you can see clearly has day how it gets in, both me old EF Mont and EB GLi never had this problem :(.

still need motivation to do the trans pan drop and filter today or on the weekend.

Which area of Sadelaide are you?

I live not far from the Womma Rd U Pull It and I'll be heading there in the next week or so to see if I can find the Stereo/Cruise switches for the Mont. If you like I look out for decent seals while I'm there.
