Anyone have the part number for the seal on the factory sunroof? Is it a Ford part or aftermarket? Supposed to rain Wednesday and I have an 1/8" gap around the seal on the new TC. Thanks

Pete, I tried that. I couldnt find the Ford part number anywhere. Do you think the sunroof doctor's seal is better or as good?

I never did a sun roof seal.

83-86 weatherstrip = E3SZ-6351346-A

87-88 " = E6SZ-63502C12-A

I would suspect these are obsolete from ford

Sunroof Doctor's stuff works great, looks like factory. I redid mine a couple of years ago and it make a vast difference.

Good topic, I need one on my latest daily driver, it is quieter with the moonroof open in the vent position than closed. There was some earlier posts,(I used the search function) that stated the Sunroof Doctors weatherstrip fit so tight that you had to push up the sunroof to help it. Has anyone had this problem, and anyone with this problem, do you have an updated report?
Thanks Bill

Did the sunroof doctor seal. Car is guiet as can be, but the seal lets in NO water, as in the drain tubes don't see any water. I do have to push up on the glass to get it open in the vent position. No big deal. Works well.

Bill, I think what was meant is "cold solder JOINT". The soldering process didnt "take", and although the solder joint looks OK, it isnt making electrical contact. Many times just hitting the joint with a soldering gun and remelting it will cure the problem. "Cold" solder joints were the main problem with the GM PCMs in the 80s / early 90s that caused so many PCM replacements.
