Bought these last week, arrived the other day but as I work away from home during the week, I have not fitted them yet.

They are promoted in the listing and with a video of being as easy to close not like the others for sale.

 

I will update if anyone is interested, with my results after fitting.

Thanks guys!

 

@ Pelikan had you got around fitting them by any chance?

HI,

Just fitted them today and they certainly don't need as much slam as the other new ones that I bought from a well known Ebay Escort source months ago.

I noticed that the these new ones have the crushable foam rubber tube which is not as big in diameter compared to the others I bought and these new ones have small holes every so often which helps in my opinion if any air is trapped it should not be like pushing against a balloon if you get the drift etc. (They still seal all round when looking from inside the car even though slightly smaller crushable seal part etc).

 

My doors on my Mk1 shut with still a little extra effort than being A1 perfect but certainly not as much as before and im pretty sure that when they settle in to shape, they will be even easier to close through time.

 

All in, I would recommend them and I think I will order another set for my other Mk1 escort, especially at that price. :thumbsup:

cool thanks for that! While at it, I sent you an email through the website for postage cost to Malta. 

 

And something else crossed my mind. I also need a set of bolts & proper locknuts for 13gt struts which go through the backplate, strut, and  steering arms. Do you happen to have any of those? Mine keep coming slightly loose even with threadlock and they rattle with every minor road imperfection

I purchased some form a company in kent to say they were terrible is an understatement they were know where near even with slamming the doors ,tried the drill holes in the back route ,made no difference ,in the end fitted some similar to vw ones and it sounded like a golf

hi postage cost to malta is around £16 tracked and signed for.

 

I do have steering arm bolts can you confirm length most don't use back plates any more. so would like to double check I supplied the correct length for you

 

thanks

I would have to take the hub off just to check the length. The backplate is not very wide though so I don't think 2mm will make much of a difference?

 

Are the bolts metric? these are for mk1 struts not mk2 so I need these in UNF thread ideally

Hi there

 

Sounds good to me. I need the rubber seals for both sides of my estate, same lengths as the two door escorts. I'll have the steering arm UNF bolt kit as well. I assume the kit is for both sides?

 

Shall I purchase them through the site?

So quick update:

 

Door seals are in place. A bit harder to close the doors but on a positive note they are no longer leaking when it rains. I assume over time they will settle in place as that's what these seals do.

 

Bolts got here as well but I'm yet to install them.
