Fitting rear side window.

Hi
I recently bought a Scudo panel van  (2006) to convert to a weekend camper. I just bought an original rear side window (the panel one not the sliding door one) from an Expert Combi it came with a nice soft rubber seal I would like to reuse but its the type without a bead.
I cannot find out how big to make the hole, I know beaded seals need an extra 7mm all round cut out over size of window, but this looks like it needs less than size of window not more???
Does anyone know how much I need to adjust the template by to get a good fit?
Thanks
Kim smile

Re: Fitting rear side window.

From what I hear, you may struggle to fit it as the factory window doors have a recess to make the window sit flush (i.e the doors are different, not just a stock door with a window in it)

I chose to just buy a door with window already fitted and swap it over, much easier (for me anyway) smile

Anyhoo this is clearly way too late of a reply anyway haha

Shame they thought of that and not, ya know, making the rear door flush with the front door =/

I actually meant the panel window not the door although I fear the same thing applies, and not too late, as I havn't choped a big useless hole in the side of the van yet, although too late for stopping me wasting £50 on a window that wont fit sad

Re: Fitting rear side window.

Is the recess not just to let the window frame tuck into the van bodywork? Im sure ot will still go onto a normal panel it will just stick out a tad to whatever height the window frame is. My van is a standard bus with pop riveted windows as standard, like old landrover defenders. They dont make any more wind noise and work as they should. If you have the sliding opening ones just watch what side you put it on as there is a O/S and N/S one.

Re: Fitting rear side window.

Well didnt look like they would fit in any way that was effective, what you could do is buy standard universal window seals then you could maybe make them work. If anyone wants to try they can have my side window as its too much hassle to post so probably going to tip.

I have now fitted a bonded on door window, upside down so it lines up with matching door window and it looks good but cost 3 times as much.

Re: Fitting rear side window.

What size is your hole big_smile You can get the pop rivet ones from an LDV Convoy. Three sizes, 99cm wide, 92cm and 82cm. All are 50cm tall. That is the frame outer measurements so the inner cut hole will be around 2/3cm smaller. They should come with a rubber strip to cover the rivets. Landrover do them also but the LDV ones can be had from £30 2nd hand.

Oh. The 92cm one is sold. Other two slide open.
