After years of sitting out in the sun and rain, your Fox Body Mustang's weatherstrip can start to deteriorate, become worn, torn, and brittle. This leads to wind noise, water leaks, and other elements entering the inside of your Fox. Late Model Restoration put together this quick, and easy to follow, guide to help you get the correct weatherstrip for your Fox Body Mustang!
Mustang Door To Body Weatherstrip
The door to body weatherstrip is one of the most common seals that go bad. This seal runs around the perimeter of your door frame on the body side. It seals the door to the body when the door is closed to prevent leaks, wind noise, and other debris from entering your Mustang. Common symptoms of the bad door to body weatherstrip include wind noise, leaks along the top of the door into your interior, and torn weatherstrip.
***Please note*** These door to body weatherstrips need to be trimmed to fit for convertible and T-top applications.
MUSTANG HATCH WEATHERSTRIP
Your hatch seal is an important piece that prevents your cargo & hatch carpet from rain damage. This seal runs around the perimeter of your hatch frame on the body side of hatchback model Mustangs. The hatch weatherstrip seals the hatch to the body to prevent leaks, wind noise, and debris from entering your Mustang. Common symptoms of bad hatch weatherstrip include wind noise, water leaks, hatch chattering/vibration, and torn weatherstrip.
Mustang Trunk Weatherstrip
Your trunk seal is an important piece that prevents your trunk cargo from rain damage. This seal runs around the perimeter of your trunk frame on the body side of coupe and convertible Mustangs. The trunk weatherstrip seals the trunk to the body to prevent leaks, wind noise, and debris from entering your Mustang. Common symptoms of bad trunk weatherstrip include wind noise, water leaks, trunk chattering/vibration, and torn weatherstrip.
Mustang Run Channel Weatherstrip
Run channel weatherstrip is a vital component to sealing the door windows on your Fox Mustang. These seals run inside the door frame and are the pieces your windows roll up into. The outside of the run channel is a rubber seal, while the inside is felt so it doesn't scratch your window. The run channel weatherstrip seals the window to the door frame to prevent leaks, wind noise, and debris from entering your Mustang. Common symptoms of bad run channel weatherstrip include wind noise, water leaks, and cracking along the rubber outside portion.
Mustang Sunroof Weatherstrip
There are two pieces of weatherstrip that seal your sunroof - a bodyside, and a glass side. The bodyside is located along with the frame of your sunroof where the sunroof rests when in the full downright position. There is another seal that attaches around the glass itself. Together, these two seals work together to keep wind noise, water, and other elements out of your Mustang. Common symptoms of bad sunroof weatherstrip include wind noise, leaks along with the sunroof, sunroof glass vibrations, and torn weatherstrip.
Mustang Inner Door Belt
These 5.0Resto rubber inner door belt seals are the main weatherstrip that attaches to your interior door panel. This piece has a felt lining that wipes the window clean when it goes up and down. When this piece goes bad it can scratch the window or window tint and keeps debris from inside the door panel. This 5.0 Resto piece includes the chrome strip attached to enhance interior looks.
Mustang Door Belt Cap Weatherstrip
These 5.0Resto rubber belt cap seals fit at the front of the Mustang Convertible or T-Top door window and seal the opening that the window comes through the door. These often get worn out from the window rubbing against them over a long period of time. If the car sees extended time outside it can also dry rot.
