Re: Megane Cabrio Mk 1 corroding front window seal

I have similar problems with my 1994 Clio and have been searching for a solution but as yet have had no success. I priced what it would cost to have them plastic coated but on further enquiry the plastic wouldn't adhere to the corrosion of the aluminium. In fact I have one in a scrapper and decided to strip the rubber off and I found the corrosion so deep the metal wouldn't withstand any sanding to remove the eroded areas.

I agree 150 per window just isn't justifiable although apparently the price includes a complete window trim kit.
