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 bad door to body weatherstrip include wind noise, leaks along the top of the door into your interior, and torn weatherstrip.
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 Inner Door Belt Weatherstrip
If you've ever rested your arm out the window and felt a sharp poke, it was most likely a dry-rotted door belt weatherstrip. The inner door belt weatherstrip attaches to the top of your door panel to keep moisture, and debris, out of the inside of your door. This seal has a felt lining that wipes the window clean when it goes up and down, and a chrome trim piece that improves the look of your interior. A common symptom of a worn inner door belt weatherstrip is scratches on your window tint, or pieces of rubber missing from deterioration.
Mustang Sunroof Weatherstrip
There are two pieces of weatherstrip that seal your sunroof - a bodyside, and a glass side. The bodyside is located along 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 the sunroof, sunroof glass vibrations, and torn weatherstrip.
