Falling off rubber fillers on my 95 FWB


Recommended Posts

How do you deal with falling off rubber strips (see the picture)? Some suggest removing them all. Is there any way to glue them permanently? Thanks.

Ill look in my manual later but I have a feeling that you could replace them, gluing them would not be a fix. You might check with a body shop to see if they have access to replacement rubber

Mike, why are they there in the first place? The dealer I bought the car from advised to remove them all.

I tried to glue them on but it was only a temporary fix. I ended up taking an xacto knife and trimmed them back.

Paul, someone on the other board recommended 3M Emblem Adhesive. I am going to try.

I doubt if those parts are even available anymore - probably long since discontinued. The purpose is to reduce wind noise. I would use a small amount of weatherstrip adheshive to retain them. Apply a strip of masking tape across the rubber strip to hold it in place while the adheshive cures.

Yes, probably strict requirements for Fleewoods related to the windnoise made GM use those fillers. I'll try to glue them down. If it does not work, I will just pull them out.

Glued them all down with a five-minute epoxy from Wal-Mart. Secured the strips with pieces of scotch for some 30 minutes till the epoxy cured. Looks good. Let's see it it lasts.
