Thought some might find this interesting. Some annoying. Some amazed, shocked and or dismayed.

Like myself, my car (98 STS) isn't getting any younger. And with 270K on the clock of my daily driver, things are starting to wear out.

One of them is the seal on my sunroof. It didn't help that the previous owner THOUGHT it was leaking and... GLUED IT SHUT!

Well, since the suns starting to come out here, I thought it'd be nice to finally get it open. So, I very slowly and carefully cut back the gunk he used to seal it up, and cleaned off as much as I could from the body, and the seal itself. Unfortunately, the seal was in pretty piss poor shape.

No big (I tell myself!)... I've got a close buddy who works at the parts dept of GM. I'll just give him a call!

Well, I won't say the price here, but he says "No problem. I can get you the seal for only $xxx.xx! I'll even include the glass for no charge!" (he's kidding).

Yes, you heard it right. They don't sell the seal. Just the complete glass assembly!

So, has anyone gone to Steel Rubber (or SoffSeal, or one of the other manufacturers) and asked them about making a seal?

All they'd need is the exact cross section of it, and how long it was. Then it could be glued or stuck on with 3M trim tape.

We can get all these seals for the Fiero's already.

Is it part 9 in the picture? or wait, I guess part #19?

The parts list linked also includes a #19 which is described as weather stripping for $128 019 12371671 WEATHERSTRIP. Roof Panel

if you search on that p/n or head to a junk yard with the p/n 12371671 you perhaps can find at a discount.

Ah! #19! I've just forwarded that on to buddy - maybe he hadn't had his first caffiene injection yet that morning?

We were chatting over email, so I never even looked at the picture myself... thanks!
