Every one knows it's a PITA, and this has been discussed before, though not recently, and I have a question.

Is there any difference between 1900/2000 windshield base rubber seal and the same for the Giulia. Mine is a little too thick to settle down nicely over the welded seam, and I am thinking it may be the wrong seal Cocognani has a separate part number, and this increases my suspicion. Any knowledge about this would be helpful.

A "separate part number" from what? I would be very surprised if ANY of the rubber components on a 102 were the same as a 105.

Sorry, clarification. I am referring to the 101 Giulia Spider windshield base seal that has a number different than that for the 102 Spider. Many aspects of the widow constructions are similar. The rubber seals I have for the rear of the window posts are almost identical to the original, but not, just too wide. Who knows?

Barry,

Few of us are psychic. Are you saying that you are using parts intended for a 101? If so, I strongly suggest you order the correct parts. They fit and work fine. No problem laying flat, although I don't recall a welded seam in that area. When I get home I'll go through my pics and see if they show such a seam.

Note that the 101 convertibles were built by PF, and the 102 by Touring. The various parts might look similar, but all you need in this type application is 1/16 difference, and you're screwed.

Don, I have new rubber that came with the car and is supposed to be for the 102 Spider. I don't know where it came from and have no parts numbers. I am just searching for the reason I am having trouble. I do know the rubber on the rear of the posts is way over size, hence I wonder if all the rubber is incorrect. I'll ask the PO for more info. I know he bought lots of stuff from Re-Originals, with whom I have had trouble communicating lately. You are right 1/16 is way too much to tolerate.
