Mercedes oem or donít bother on the seals. URO makes weather seals for the 107, and is the only aftermarket option as far as I know, but they are worthless. Speaking from personal experience, but many others have had unfavorable experiences with URO seals

I have the uro seals and installed them. They sell a kit which has everything you'll need.

They're not bad and have been holding up nicely. The A pillar seals went through a revision update so make sure to contact [email protected] if you have the latest ones.

I've been very satisfied with them. You'll definitely need to redo the window adjustments to get a snug fit but worth it on the end.

That's because their site isn't where they sell their wares

Check out rmeuropean.com

and Autohausaz.com

Both are forum sponsors.

This site will have an online copy of the FSM: https://www.startekinfo.com/StarTek/...tedDocId=11883

Your wiring diagram should be in there.

No gasket in front windshield. From what I have read the rear glass is a bitch to install.

I'm actually in the process of replacing them all and bought the "premium" set from https://www.theslshop.com/. They seem to be pretty good quality, I've replaced doors, hardtop and a-pillars and b-pillars... am now in the process of replacing the soft-top compartment lid seal. I guess only time will tell, but they look good, and have the cloth material in the right places. Also, one of the door seals got lost in the shuffle when they were picking the shipment and they have been good with communication and working to solve the issue.
Hope this helps!

Can you get the rear window out without breaking it? My rear window needs to be re-sealed.

Thanks a Million

from my experiance on many cars VS OLD rubber, its rare that it isnt better to slowly cut and trim away at the seal all the way around the glass to get it out...better to destroy a seal than break glass.....besides the seals are rarely in good enough shape to warrent saving

best way i useualy do it is to cut at a 45 deg angle from the body tward the glass, dont cut deep right off , make multiple passes and try pealing the rubber back as it will useualy split and then "rip" all the way around leaving you a window that wil just pop out
