So on a sunny Saturday morning Myk rocked up to help. First we cleaned the windows and checked which way around the rubber seals had to go.
If you take a closer look at the rubber seals you'll see one slot on the inside that goes over the body flange, one slot on the outside for the window and finally one slot on the outside for the chrome/alu trim.
The rear window was still the original one and is made of toughend glass which is stronger than the front window that was once replaced for a laminated one. We started with fitting the new rubber seal around the rear window. Because the rear window has strong curves it was hard to keep the rubber in place so we used some masking tape.

|Rear window Volvo 122S fitted with the help of a washing line|
|Masking tape to keep the body clean and scratch free|
|Putting Sikaflex 227 sealant between the body and rubber window seal|
|Fitted windshield with new rubber seal Volvo 122S|
|Rigid seal rear side window Volvo 122S|
|Fitting a string in the slot of the window seal|
|Moving the seal in the right position|
|Using the trick with the washing line|
|Seal back in place|
When the rubber seal is in place it will take only a couple of minutes to put back the window with the 4 bolts and 2 screws.
Done. Next thing to do is fitting the trim in the rubber seal around the windows...
