door draught excluder

Postby doughicks » Mon Mar 16, 2020 11:48 pm

What color is the door draught excluder on a 51 mm and is there suppose to be a rubber boot over the dip switch. The connections are under the floorboard?

Thanks
Doug

The draught excluder colour should (roughly) match the paint colour. Never seen a rubber over the dip switch, so I say no......

draught excluder matches the trim colour; red leather has red fabric, blue, green, etc. Mine is a black 4 door, with red trim, including the draught excluder.

Yes, correct! Momentary lapse of brain cells! I should know, having had a black Minor with red trim and a blue one also with red! :oops:

The interior is beige seats and the exterior is green, therefore the draught excluder I assume should be green.

Door panels are beige as all mm seats and panels are that color. Carpet is a dark green.

Like you, my guess is green to match the carpet and the paintwork....but that is only a guess. Maybe a MM expert will be along soon to advise.....
