Hi all! I have an 81 280 CE that I inherited from my father. I've noticed a little water in the rear trunk after a rain. Of course I suspect the windshield gasket. I am looking for anyone who has replaced a gasket on these cars and if they have any info on this repair. I've noticed a little rust inder the gasket so I know this would need to be removed as well. It seems like glass removal and replacement is best left to the professionals but I need to remove this rust as well. Any suggestions?<br> <br> Thanks! <br> -jante

If you have the one with the inbuilt defrost wires, definitely leave the fitting to the professionals. <br> <br> Since you are buying a new rubber seal anyhow, just get a sharp knife and CAREFULLY slit the rubber around the edge until the window is free. You'll need to disconnect the defrost wires as well.
