Now in possession of the correct genuine Land Rover tools to fit the infill strip to the safari roof light window seals, I can finish what I started in November.
The infill strip expands the main rubber seals sufficiently to stop the glass from falling out… which it would, if I went over a pothole… Not that I’ve found many in Switzerland 🙂
… and repeat on the port side, which i did.
This is a really interesting article. Currently refurbing a Safari roof and, having watched a lot of disparaging videos on YouTube, was dreading putting the windows back in. Can I ask where you got the tools from?
Hi Charlie, Thanks for leaving a comment. I bought the tools from Wood & Picket Mini Centres’ eBay shop. The exact description of the tool on their site is: “Classic Mini Windscreen & Rear Screen Insert fitting Tool”. I was surprised to get two tools! The cranked one is by far the most useful.
Also, the Land Rover part umber for the tool is 262771 and you’ll find plenty of results for that if you put it into google.
I found soaking the seals and insert strip in a bucket of hot water helped… and some silicon spray helped a lot.
It,s a but fiddly but really not that bad.
Hope this helps and best of luck.
Thank you very much!
Slowly working through your posts. So helpful, wish I’d seen them several months ago.
Have a painting question which I’ll leave on the relevant post.
