Got a question about these:

When I tried to fit them to the door, the two plugs located at the corner seem to be too close to each other.  If I attempt to stretch the rubbers enough to actually fit, it's almost tearing the rubber apart at the join.

I have two of them and they're both made the same way.  I've measured both front doors and the hole centers are tthe same as each other.

 

Just wondering if they've been made incorrectly or is that how all the front door rubbers are made?

 

Thanks,

Greg.

Thanks for that Datto.

Will have to get them replaced.

Do you know if they have a central returns address? I got them from Preston motors who don't deal in Rares Spares parts any more.

Thanks LHSL, that photo shows clearly how mine should be. Interesting that the date on your label is for 28/04/15 were as mine is 26/06/18 so they've had a regression down the line somehow. Hope the new ones will be ok.

I just fitted up a set bought a year ago, and they are spot on. Really happy with them.

In still waiting to here back from Rares. Might have to give them a ring. I cant properly adjust the doors without the rubbers.
