Volkswagen Air Cooled 1949-1969 Repair Guide



Doors and windows will not seal properly if weatherstripping becomes brittle or damaged. For this reason, all weatherstripping on the Volkswagen should be given a light treatment with talcum powder from time to time. If the movement of rubber weatherstripping causes squeaking or groaning noises, apply talcum powder or glycerine to the surface of the rubber. If the weatherstripping around the windshield or rear window is not leakproof, apply a good quality window cement between the rubber seal and the metal frame.
