Gummipfledge stift is how I believe you spell it, but can confirm that later

I used it on my e46 coupe seals and it did a wondrous job of preventing the glass sticking to the seal (pillarless door)

Did some more to the car today, trying to do little bits at a rate so the car becomes a very nice place to be and then leave only things that aren’t immediate or annoying...

Any easy wins I’ll take, so cane home to a bundle of parcels:



Cracked on with fitting the clips that were missing from the engine bay I noticed when cleaning it:













Doesn’t really do much, but it’s nice to finish it off, and obviously the engine bay needs more work, but it was a good starting point I got to.

Took out the spare wheel tray thing with the sub in it:



To get to this mess:



Cleaned it out and cleaned up the boot floor pan and the spare wheel:



Then put it all back, didn’t picture this

I don’t like the rear badges on the car, especially the R badge:





Started removing them:



‘Ghosting’ left after removing the residue:








After a quick polish:





Put in the new nav disc:



but couldn’t get past this screen



Looked it up and some people suffered this when they’ve had battery issues, after about 5 minutes playing about I was presented with this:




Looks like that’s being added to the list...

Next up was the driver door seal, evidently in dire need of replacement:



Removed the Jaguar trim plate:





Then fitted the seal:



Then treated the rubber (and all other door seals on both body and door) got some better pictures of the product:





Fitted the trim plate once again:



Last job for the day was a ghastly door rattle from drivers door...

Found this in the pocket, removed it as it may have contributed:



Still had to remove the card to deal with what was the main culprit, took of the well hidden caps by the pull handle/armrest:



Revealing these bolts:



Then removed the standard screw behind the door handle:



Then on the edge of the door is the last well hidden bolt, behind this cover:



Covering this bolt:



All removed:



Unhooked cables and lock cable, door card pulled off... this was so well fitted it hurt my fingers to remove!



Upon removal I noticed this wasn’t connected, could well have been the cause swinging around:



There’s a place for it to clip onto door card, but for closure I wanted to check everything, which means removing this speaker panel piece:



Electric screw driver was a wondrous buy, easy life is the best life:



Lovely bit of degraded foam around the cables, wiggled them and they made a tapping noise... so this was my solution:



Note that’s only for one side, and the first tape, did that for both cables... but again I forgot to picture

Upon refitting I clipped that loose cable into place:



After that I took the car for a test drive...
Success! No rattling, less road noise now the seal actually seals! Was wonderful !

Here is a picture of the rear bench, the owner used this as a family car (heroic), but it has marked the rear bench!



Replacement has been ordered!

100% agree. I use this at least monthly on the fleet to keep the seals plush and sticktion free

where do you get it? I have a seal on an old car that's really sticky and makes opening the door awkward so I would like to try this?

I’ve driven it a few times and had it for a weekend when I corrected the pain for him. Biggest issue is I have a Z4M which I love too much to get rid of.
