    Hey yall the side windows are leaking when it rains heavily. When I go back to see where its comin in, it seems to be wet in that felt channel where the glass slides. Any ideas on how hard it is to replace that felt stuff and should I replace all the rubber/seals on the windows while Im in there?. Ive heard that the felt from LMC is bad so I guess Id have to get it from GM or a glass shop.

    My sliders (before I went with solid windows) had bad seals on them, but they didn't leak. IIRC, there are small drains in the channels, make sure they aren't plugged up.

    What do I need to do to check that, remove any glass or is it in plain sight? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The drains should be in the lower channel piece in plain view, there is like 2 or 3 of them thru the whole length of the slider.
