Silver strip in window seal

Postby vivapete3 » Sun Apr 09, 2017 3:06 am

My Viva"s silver strip in the window seal surround has lost its silver colour , looking dull, is it possible to replace this strip or will I need to renew the complete seal? Next question, where can I get this strip or new seal, all idea"s welcome! Cheers, vivapete3

You can replace the strip. East Kent Trim sell them. The dimensions of these are specific to Vivas so they are the only supplier who sell the correct one AFIK.

If your rubber seal is old and hardened up then replacing the trim will be very difficult to do without damaging the rubber.
