Rear Hatch Window Seal (w/o Groove)
Vanagon rear hatch window seal WITHOUT molding groove. Not sure which window seal you need (with or without groove)? Check out our article here.
We have both German and USA - made seals. Both are excellent quality and both work as they should. The difference is the German seals are easier to install, especially in colder temperatures. We are working with the USA manufacturer to duplicate the German material more closely so that either German or USA seals install with the same difficulty. Please note: Even the German seals are not “easy” to install. Replacing window seals is not easy, period. If you are not experienced, we highly recommend a professional installer for the job.
If you decide to do it yourself, here is an install tip: All window seals are much easier to install when they are 80 degrees or warmer. Install on glass, install your rope—and let it sit in the sun or warm it up with a heat gun for best results.
