Re: Clio lll Door / Quarter Glass seal

The rubber on my door windows and side windows had a "haze" on it.
Its like a greyish yellow coating.Its been so long since Id seen this on cars , Id forgotten about it.(My car isnt 1 year old yet ).

I used the same method as I used years ago.Siliicone lubricant in a can sprayed on a cloth and wiped on the rubber.
Takes off the coating and I think protects the rubber from further atmospheric/sun damage.
At least it used to work well,hope it still does.

Meg III coupe door handles,maybe all Meg III door handles are plastic,the hinged parts of the handles are plastic ,in fact the whole handle openening and closing mechanism seems to be plastic.

This isnt very confidence inspiring on longevity..The driver door handle had already become a litle rough in operation (plastic rubbing on plastic),
I gave it a qwik spray with the silicone lubricant extension nozzle,like youd get on a can of wd 40.

The handle operation seems smooth again.
The handle was the second reason I bought a can of silicone lube spray..

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
