So.. I had algae on the front door sides, on the outside of the window just under the rubber trim. I took these off and gave them a clean (with dettol to kill the algae). But now A) windows v. squeaky when it goes up/down & B) putting the window down then up doesnt clear rain drops from the outside of windows, making it hard to see out of.
I've tried looking online, but not sure I'm searching the right phrases. I'm looking for replacement window trims with the rubber seal? (Mainly for driver side but passenger side would be nice too)
Thanks for the response, I have given them a clean out. I'll try again, but then I think it's down to trying to find the parts. I thought because its detachable it'd be easy to find a replacement but apparently not, though I may be searching the wrong names for it.
Need to find replacement part for my window trim. The black plastic is missing. Can i just replace the black plastic or does the unit come as a whole with the chrome? Whats the part name and wheres best to buy the part from? Thanks
When I first noticed the algae along the fornt window trim I though it would be difficult to clean but honestly cleaning the algae is easy guys, I simply lowered the windows to reduce the seals pressure against the glass then took a thin blade (or any thing similar will do) wrapped it with a damp cloth and ran it gently along the length of the seal. This might take a couple of passes but it does the job, stay safe
I don't know whether anyone still needs an answer to this, but the part needed is part 21 from the diagram below sent to me from DS parts department (comes complete with 'chrome'). Cost is not cheap (just over £187). If, like me, you then need the rubber which runs on the outside of the triangular window as well, by the wing mirror, you need part 14 which is the complete window rubber. Apparently parts 15, 16 and 74 are not needed for my DS on a 2014 plate, and should be reusable anyway.
