Angry New Sunroof Seal..Doesn't Fit

It was short by exactly 3 inches. I had to cut a 3 inch piece of my old one to make up the diff until I get another sent to me.

The sunroof also doesn't fit as well now. It does not sit flush like it used to. Maybe after time it will come down a bit.

Anyone have similar problem?

A new one didnt fit? Thats wierd i would think that a new one would be a smidge bigger so it would shrink into place.

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

Same here. Except my seal was about 3" too long. Maybe they got some of yours on mine.

My sunroof is just now starting to seat better (2 months later). The new seal was really tight and actually broke both sunroof gears the first time I tried to lower the roof.

mine was a bit too long, so i cut the excess off... it still sits a bit high in the front, but seems to be coming down a little over time.

You need to trim it to fit 0 the seam goes in the rear center of the sunroof.

It will wear down with time as the seal compresses.

Standing on the rear of the panel helped to compress the seal when I replaced mine.

No wonder it leaks, that's no seal at all, it's a cheapo aftermarket sea lion. They are notorious for leaking.
