How do you remove window seals on a MK3?
« on: July 24, 2021, 09:54:56 pm »
In my attempt to save my 16V from the junkyard I've embarked on some rust repairs around my rear door windows.

I'm not sure how to get the rubber seals around the window off without breaking anything. Rust is under the seals so I need it off.
Does anyone have experience?

Cheers

Thanks, the mk4 looks somewhat similar so I'll give it another go today.
