Alpine Window Seal

Wondering if anyone knows whether the alpine window seal on a NAS110 can be replaced without removing the roll cage. I hope so. Also, the parts catalog lists a weatherstrip (MWC4771) and a fillerstrip (302178). Are both of these required for replacement? Thanks.

I've done 6 or so alpine window replacements, and I think you should be able to do it without pulling a cage section. You definitely want both pieces of the weatherstrip, the filler piece is a hassle to work with if it isnt supple.

Do yourself a favor and order the 20 dollar bluepoint tool (from snap-on) for installing the filler strip. It takes a terrible job and makes it super-easy.

Jim C ... do you know the catalog number or specific name of the Snap On tool you are recommending?

Thanks,

JimC - Thanks for the advice.

I searched through Snap-On/Bluepoint, and could not find the tool you mentioned. Is it something on this page?

Matt - If I end up doing this myself, I'll let you know what I run into. I also have a new windshield to install so I'm thinking about having the alpine windows done at the same time. But I'll do them myself if I can't find someone experienced in doing them - I can screw them up myself just as well

Regarding the rear windows, I did those a while back. It's been a while, but I recall there being some rivets that need to be drilled out to get the frame apart. I actually removed the windows completely from the body, and replaced all of the rivets that hold the frame to the body with screws/washers/nuts. I did this because I had the windows try to pop out from the body when several rivets failed during a run down a washboard road.
