Hi guys, can anyone help with some measurements for the lower rear windscreen panel location. I have replaced mine (Rare Spares part), and I thought it was in the right place (based on my measurements, but there really wasn't allot of reference material left to measure TBH), but the boot lid and window seal seem to feel differently. I've ended up with a big gap through the middle of the boot lid and the seal is sitting right on the rear edge of the panel. Corners appear to be right. Any help is good help at this stage, and if need be I'll cut it all out and start again, sometimes lessons can be painful I suppose.

 

Cheers,

Mat
