Windscreen HELP

Post by Rbraz80 »

Hi,

My 1982 e21 has a cracked windscreen and I bought a used windscreen for it.

Now the guys at the workshop say it does not fit...

Are series one E21 windscreens different from series two?

Thx!

I would like to add something to this conversation as well. As I recall from several years ago, those gaskets are supposed to be glued it (sealed) prior to installing the windscreen. Can anyone confirm that.

Nope, they do not have to be glued. But some folks do, as the windshield frame is rotten. But that is not how they supposed to go in. No glue, bonding material or what so ever.

Buongiorno, il parabrezza nuovo della mia e21 323i 1982 ora in vendita, acquistato in Germania, non facciamo nomi... , si è crepato solo appoggiato alla guarnizione
Qualcuno mi sa consigliare dove acquistare un parabrezza verde fascia blu qualora non mi venisse sostituito?
Cosa di cui dubito fortemente.
Inoltre qualcuno di voi sa dove trovare il velluto blu per interni, che da quanto ne so sulle 6 cilindri era dedicato?
