Grey window seals did tend to stick afer a few years so replace with black. Most caravan workshops should stock the rubber strip you need or try Seals Direct (http://www.sealsdirect.co.uk) It's a fairly easy job.

Hi I have the same problem with my Rapide 440 GXL 1994 and wonder if any one knows what size of seal is required and how do you fit them.

:D Hello, im new to this site but noticed your post. Window seals are very easy to replace. Im a woman and did mine all by myself. I had the same problem with the horrid grey plastic ones and replaced them with black ones. They look much nicer now. im now having trouble finding a replacement lock for the battery door on a diamond pirrouette 1993 model. If anyone can help with advice id be very grateful. :?:

Hi Sunnybraeboats

Have a look at the post by web master re Seals direct http://www.sealsdirect.co.uk)
If you can not match the seal from their list you may have to sent a small section of the rubber seal to them http://www.sealsdirect.co.uk)

For a temp / short term repair apply french chalk / cheap talc to the seals , stops the window sticking to the rubber and also allows the perspex to settle / bed on the rubber seal

Re the windows...
We have just bought a '95 Rapide 470 (black window seals already fitted)....Is there a way of cleaning behind the to front windows (the ones that don't open)?
Bit of grot stuck behind them; which would be nice to get out
