My 55 hardtop has wind noise at the upper part of the door windows. They have a rubber seal that runs the length of the inside of the flipper. Is there supposed to be an additional seal or seals at the front of the flipper? Thanks. Sid

I could be wrong but I do not recall any rubber strips inside of the flipper. Does it look like some thing some one stuck in there? What I do remember is some models had fuzzy strips. Wind noise was quite common on hardtop models, even when new, so it may be a up-hill fight.
Thanks Gene, There is a small extra piece of rubber at the front on each side. The piece on the driver's side is more worn than the one on the passenger side. Someone looking at it recently thought there was supposed to be an extra seal there. In looking at Eckler's catalogue, I don't see such a seal.
A part that appears to be nylon in Ekler's catalogue is called a "flipper tab". Possibly that's the part you are talking about. I think I need to replace all the rubber parts as well. Is there a diagram of this flipper assembly somewhere? I don't see it in the shop or assembly manuals. Thanks, Sid
