Horizontal lines of contamination on roll downs

Guest darkdan

Recommended Posts

Once in a while, like 25% of the time, I'll get a horizontal line of contamination.

I know what it's from, it's from the water running out of the side and onto the film.

Now matter what I try I can't figure out how to avoid it on a consistant basis. I try pulling more liner, I try pulling less liner, I try squeeging closer to where it's peeled, I try not squeeging anything but the top, I tried flushing the sides more, I've tried keeping the sides dryer, I've tried keeping the film more curved, I've tried saying screw it I'll heat the creases out later.

It's getting to the point where I may start pulling panels or ripping out more gaskets.

On some cars, depending on the felt, it's a good idea to not only flush the heck out of the bottom once you've rolled them up, but to also do a final squeegee right where the seal was BEFORE you rolled the window up. Hope that makes sense :hmmm
