My Ride: 2002 325ci coupe
2002 325ci proper Rubber Seal Part #

Thanks for the help.

I have a 2002 325ci coupe with motorized rear windows. The outer (left side) rear rubber seal just below the window is dry-rotted and needs replacement. Can anyone fill me in on the part # and provide a retail source for it?

Here's the part number for the that gasket rail in stock chrome: 51368227685

Here's a link to tischer BMW for the part:

The part is also on pelicanparts.com, but it's $13 cheaper through tischer.

Awesome. Thanks.

Do you have any experience installing this? If so what's involved?

I'll probably bring it to a body shop and see how much they want to take care of it ...

I have the same problem, so you replace both the weather strip and chrome?

Yeah. I replaced the trim all the way around with a full black kit that I bought from tischer. I had the same issue on both sides of the rear windows as well as the rubber on the long upper trim pieces.

The rear windows for the coupe was a PITA. You have to use a heat gun to soften the adhesive that holds these in place. It took forever, and the adhesive residue was extremely persistant. There is a DIY on these in this forum as well.

Yes. It's all one piece.
