    BJ7/8 Door Seals

    There are supposed to be a tiny screw and a chrome clip that hold the end of door seal when it makes the turn onto the rear interior trim panel. Does someone have a picture of where the screw goes as well as the chrome clip?

    Thanks,,
    Rick

    John,

    Is it possible to get a copy of the same pic? I am almost at that stage of installing my interior and I have the same question.

    Thanks,
    Pete

    I think I found a way to reduce the size of the attachment to meet the BCF size requirements. I do not remember who sent me these instructions, but they are very helpful. I think I also have pictures of the clip that attaches the Bristleflex to the rear panel edge.

    Yup John

    That is what I have done with mine too, I might have taken mine a bit further along the inner quarter panels.

    Hi Rick,

    I also added an additional trim-collored screw about 5" below the one described in John's MacGregor document to assure tight active-side placement retention of the weather strip during consecutive door closes.
