In looking for rubber and other seals for my 64 MK X. project. I order a rubber kit for XK’s Unlimited (Moss) and found out after it was delivered that the seals for the front vent windows and the rubber door seals do not come in the kit anymore due to supply issues.
So I’m looking for other sources of these. It anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. If you have the information part numbers for the supplier would be useful too.
Lastly I need information on the inner door seal that appears to be U shaped and goes over the pinch weld seam on the body. Common on most British cars but in variety of materials, cloth, rubber, etc. What is correct on the Mark X. Supplers/part #'s?
I have the rubber-on-body seals to fit…they are really long, over 12ft for one section.
It has 3 or 4 sections,
got mine of a gent had it left over from a resto
I am waiting myself to perform some relatively minor, but tricky c-channel repair, before fitment
as far as I am aware, these items are available from some sources, maybe Baines, try David manners, Barratts, Scotts Old Auto Rubber.
One problem is the person on the other end is not knowing exactly what you are speaking about!
On the MK2 Vent rubber, I expect to have that job done within 3 months, and will post pics on this forum…I may even start a topic with some pics beforehand, have a dismantled MK10 door, and the MK2 seals on hand
The question mark is I am not sure this is the seal you want, as you seemed to be saying it wasnt, in a previous post ?
That part is the “seal on door” (x4) which goes in the chrome channel on the door frame, and seals against the “rubber on body” seal sections . It comes in one long section which must be cut & glued at the corners
I will have a quick look at my B-pillar seals, if I get a chance
Sorry for the confusion. Scott’s Old Auto Rubber has the door seal that goes on the body. I have that on order. I’m now looking for the one that goes into the outside of the chrome window frames on the door and I would assume seals against the underside of the rain gutters.
I’m wondering if it might be the same one as on an S or E type of the same vintage?
Thanks Tony. Very helpful as always. Based on your description I’m looking for 1) the “seal on door” and 2) what I thought was a seperate seal going up the middle of the B pillar is actually a continuation of the “seal on body piece”.
I’m got the seal on “seal on body” pieces in hand or on order form Scott’s Old Auto Rubber". Now looking for “seal on door”. I’ll check ebay as you suggested. Where they listed with a Mark X reference?
the " that seal on body" goes on the c-channel on body, and comes as a continuous length (from Scotts, and you cut it to fit…2 long pieces + the front drip channel section, which has a different profile.
The “seal on door” is the ebay part I showed, advertised from Jagdaim in Australia, but it can be purchased cheaper in UK I think.
very strange wording in the ebay ad…otherwise it will hurt us both??.. correct Jaguar part num
May Suit: Jaguar Mark10 MK10 420G. Otherwise, it will hurt both of us. Usefull Link. Why Choose Us ?. New Arrivals. Other PN: BD21143/1
these are a length, must be cut in half, but fit correctly
I will be interested how you go with the Scotts Rubber “seal-on-body”
last I heard he was out-of-stock, and its my understanding he makes his own extrusions, which is good, in that he is different to the other suppliers, but bad if he sells out
an issue with MKX seals is that originals were formed as correct fitting pieces (as shown in parts manual). Replacement seals are almost invariable not formed exactly like the originals
Thanks for the comments Tony. I had an opportunity to inspect the car while I had the diagram you sent from the parts manual. It makes a lot more sense now. It also appears I already had the t “on the door” seal as part of my rubber kit from XK’s Unlimited. The “on the body” seal is on the way from Scott’s. When I ordered earlier this week he had in stock.
Any good tips about installing either of the seals?
The seal on door is fairly easy, however (I) had to cut a 45* mitre to join them on the corner, and this must be done carefully and strong glue.
the body on seal is not overly difficult, however, the following advice.
ALL old hard rubber and dirt must be roved from the c-channel, or the rubber foot will not slide along it…I lubed with rubber grease, and worked the 12ft length along.
I added a small dab of glue in strategic places
On my driver side, I found the c-channel has rusted somewhat, and I am going to repair this before fitting that seal…method, cut the section of c-channel off the body, form a matching profile over a metal form, glue or weld new section of metal
You will be lucky if the lower c-channel sections are not affected, they are a moisture trap.
I will do a pictorial on DS door seals, including qtr vent asap.
have had other things holding me up, such as a major building project, and some turkey smashed my daily driver, and I had to do a lot of work to rectify that
have you done your “door to window sealing rubbers” yet…they stop rain running down the side glass into door cavities?
I did a pictorial on that, my supplier was Scotts rubber, they fit perfect and cost $18 for enough to to all 4
Working on the car today. It appears the on body seal (goes in C channel on body) stope at the bottom of the front window then starts again near the door sill plate. What goes around the horizontal drain panel above around the door hinges up back to the sill plate where the c channel begins. I think this is the one you are talking about mitering.
seal on body goes into c-channel, which should be present from A-pillar all around car.
except horizontal rain gutter in front of a-pillar.
This section I am a little unclear about. My kit has a basic U-shaped section that sits over the flange, and no corner piece to join them, so the c-channel section will need to be glued to the u-channel part
Originally, this is a formed one-piece section from Jaguar
afaic, the correct item has not been available for many years
its important though, as water pools there, and runs into the vehicle if the seal is failed.
I believe the seal on body c-channel sections needs 25ft per side
Got the “on body” door seal from Scott’s over the weekend. Looks well made. I was able to fit the piece that goes above the front door window frame and all around the rear door on one side in a little over a hour. As you mentioned my door also closes well but requires more force to shut.
Made a quick attempt to fit on of the window frame seals and it appears this will be a more difficult seal to fit due to it being constructed out of harder rubber material.
