Re: Series 3 2+2 October 1972 B Post Seal

Hi Chris......as you have found out from the parts manusl the correct door seal is BD28434/1..... the one you have may be wrong.......as for the seal in the quarterlight channel that faces into the door opening..think it should be BD 20500/4...Thats whats shown in the parts catalogue....Steve
