I am on the way to remount the Doors of my +2S 130. How to place the Weather Strip for interior and waist, and which Clips and Screws from where to which hole is not clear to me.
The Pictures in the Parts Catalogue dont help me much. I hope someone of you had made a few pictures of the Detgails that couls help me.

It goes where shown on your image.

However you have extra "spire"(?) clip on you door. The screw should be 1/4" or 3/8" long, you don't want it too long as can impact and break the window.

The screw goes through the chrome trim clip, through the door, through the weather strip and secures into a spire clip on the metal window frame. You need to position the weather strip so it sit correctly over the chrome trim once fitted.

hi mbell

thank you for your information. I noticed that i receievd the wrong clip Weatherstrip to frame 050B6012.
The Clip i first receive from Sjsprtscars was to small. With the new, wider Clip i guess that it will work.
