mm screen rubber

Hi guys,yes,I know this has been discussed a million times before but where is the best place to get a front screen rubber that actually fits? I have tried three now and each one has torn on the front sealing lip.All seem to be too small.
Its for a `52 MM.

Re: Fitting Screen

Suzikimorris,I am in the Romford,Essex area.As we all know,this is probably the worse job on the whole car but as they were fitted in the first place it must be possible to fit without all this hassle!Or not.Can you imagine doing this on a production line! Looks like ANOTHER rubber is required. Pete...

Re: Rear side screen winder

Good question Mike.I see no reason why this is not possible,maybe with a bit of gentle persuasion!
So can anyone help with any type of glass channel?

Re: windscreen rubber

Thanks for that.Just one question,,,,,is the glass fitted from the ouside or in and did you use any lube?That`s two questions but still,any help is very much appreciated.My rubber came from Bull Motif(eventually) and I am still very wary of fitting the glass.
All the best,John
