Default Volvo 240 Driver Window Weatherstrip

Hey all,

So there is the strip that surrounds the window that the window goes inside. It covers the rear of the window opening, the top, and front as you go toward the side view mirror. It's not the window scraper I am unsure what the name is.

The rear part of the stripping has gone somehow and has caused afew issues. For one water finds it way in of course and two when driving above 50-55 loud constant annoying air gets in and just makes the inside of the car loud.

So how can I get ahold of a replacement stripping and how's installation?

Thanks

Window guide or window track.

You'll need to drop the window down into the door to change it.

Edit for window tipping picture.

I have a 92 240 in the yard. Just a junk car. I am thinking about trying to pull the window surround off of it.

Any thoughts?

Sorry I didn't clarify that my car is an 85 and I was asking in terms of compatibility from the 92.

But this method of the window I haven't seen before. Do I actually have to do the window that way? Couldn't I just roll the window down?

Thanks

Same thing 74 - 93 Front / Rear & 242 window specific, but not side specific.

Yes because it will not tip the other way.

No I highly doubt it will go in.

The rubber drops down into the side of the door about another 3/4 inches IIRC. Although you may be able to remove the rubber with the glass in place ( maybe) I doubt you will be able to reinstall it correctly without tipping the glass.

Is there any way I could just replace the back strip missing?

The vertical peice perpendicular to the door handle.

Also is there any way to get an automatic window down with no battery in the car?

Thanks

No, and put a battery in the car. That's the way to do it unless you want to pull the door card, cut the wires and power it directly from a smaller battery.

Unplug the lead to the power window motor and jump it there with 12V from any source.

You'll want the window about 1/2 way down then reach up in there lift the front of the clip and push the clips back off.

So I would unplug the motor on the driver window and then put 12v on the motor prong and then a ground on the other prong on the connector?

The leads on the connector from the motor right? I'm just going by a picture of the motor and it shows its wiring coming off with the connector on the end.

Yea I believe backwards is down. I don't have a 12v supply so I may just run wires from a battery and do it that way. One coming off positive and one negative.

Sounds good.

I carry one of my Milwaukee 12V batteries in the JY to test things and do this sort of stuff.

18v makes the window come down faster
