The seal lining the softtop compartment of my 380sl was worn and
leaking in places. So I ordered an after-market replacement that was
marked with the Mercedes Part #1077580198. Most of the part's features
seem correct, and it appears that the part number is correct. But the
seal seems like its about 2-3" too long. Plus it isn't cut to allow
the catch on the latching mechanism to come up and grab the hook on
the softop when the hook is inserted into the hole in the hatch.
So I'm wondering whether there's something wrong with the part, or I'm
just missing something. Any help anyone can offer would be
Thanks in advance.
