This is an inexpensive kit to replace the gray fuzzy weather strip on your Vanagon sliding glass window. One piece fits vertically between the sliding glass and the fixed glass, and one piece fits horizontally along the bottom of the movable glass. Kit includes enough material to replace the fuzzy strips on BOTH sliding glass windows (left and right sides).

Fitment notes: Will work on any 1980-91 Vanagon. If you do not have a full camper, you will end up with a small amount of leftover material.

Installation notes: The installation of the vertical strip requires the removal of the window from the vehicle, which means you will most likely need a new window seal to re-install the window properly. The sliding portion of the glass must be removed from the frame, which requires the removal of the felt channel at the top/rear of the frame and the plastic guide bushings on the bottom of the sliding channel. Once the glass is out of the way, you can slide the old strips out and install the new ones, then reassemble the window and reinstall it into the vehicle. Basically, this is not a quick or easy job, and you should consider having a professional installation.
