    Have noticed the little black triangle bit on my rear passenger window is starting to bubble.

    Have any of you guys got this or had this bit replaced?

    Cheers.

    apaprently they are a real pain to change. Easier to get them rubbed down and sprayed...cheaper and wil last you years

    I have the same thing and I believe it's not rust but rather bubbling from heat. (Could be wrong though)
    I've only seen it happen on one side depending on how the car is normally parked. I'm looking at getting it resprayed as I was told changing them is a real pain.
     
  9. my car is doing this on one side also.
    the whole door has to be striped to get that piece repaired /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bang.gif
