Help with W108 windshield replacement
I have removed the front and rear windshields of my 280SEL for rust repair/repaint. I have purchased new seals (Manufactured by URO) but have questions about reinstallation. Some threads talk about glue while others say no glue. I have tried to fit the seals to the windshield, but they tend to keep falling off the top radius. I have triple checked the part numbers on the bags for the seals to make sure they are right, but they seem to not want to stay on the glass.
Is this normal? Do they need to be glued to the glass to keep them in place while installing into the car?
Any help is appreciated. My manual does not cover glass install.
