    Window seals on golf Mk6

    The external seal on my driver's window is distorted. The seal appears to go all the way round the left, top and right side of the door. The left side pulls away but the top section seems to be permanently fixed/sealed/glued to the door. My attempts to pull this back have made it worse as it now won't lie flush and sticks up

    It started with squeaky window when it went up and down. Used WD40 on seals which has left them distorted.

    2 questions, how much is a replacement and is it a DIY or dealer only job. I ask as it appears the top section is fixed and also the wing mirror needs to be removed.

    Thanks

    Chris

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    We have had a lot of issues with Golf 6 doors, it was an internal reaction to the previous Boss Ferdinand Pich's obsession with 3mm equal panel fit that on the Golf 5 in four door guise meant those four doors cost as much to make and build into the car as it cost Ford to but a complete Focus so the Golf 6 had huge amounts of money taken away from its much cheaper made doors. A similar thing happened with the Golf 5 suspension, at the Golf 5 launch in September 2003 at the Frankfurt IAA, a rather impressive very tall lady engineer told me that the PQ35/PQ46 rear suspension (now proving to be a maintenance wallet ache) cost so much to design and develop that they had to drastically cut the budget for the interior, especially the fascia and compared to the Golf 4 and 6 it shows.

    The only source of this seal set is a VW dealer (TPS is trade account only now), private message me your reg number.
