I spent ages trying to sort this known Tbar problem.

I bought eccentric rod guides... then bought new seals (£400 !). Then bought some nylon and rubber lubricant from Halfords.

Finally sorted it... I get about 2 drips passenger side for about an hour of driving so not bad. Still to play with the rod guides a bit more on that side.

First I would go for the Nylon and Rubber Lubricant.... then eccentric rod guides.

I personally don't like what Bibbs done to his seals.. I don't think it looks too good. Go for the lube, then rod guides... both very cheap. If your seals are really old and duff looking ( like mine were, and you have the money ).. then get new seals too.

Yeah .. it's not the best looking (cause I was in a rush .. it was cold and me dinner was ready) ..

But the amount of dollah I saved .. makes me smile .. new Seals? Nah .. I like the £400 notes to be put behind the bar down the local ..

maybe I'm just fussy.... well.. nah.. I am... lol.

Just don't like how that looks. It would annoy me too much.

It annoys me and it aint even my car, lol :)

btw nowt against u bibbs :thumbsup:

Can them strips be painted over w. something to retore their colour?

Mine r in pretty good nick, i.e. fully intact w. nothing missing, but they're just faded in places and i dont like the look of em like that.

TBH u wouldnt really notice em that much, my dad didnt, but i can and i don't like it one bit!

Ahem .. the old style vaseline would have been fine, but the new formula used actually perishes the rubber (why you shouldn't use it on Condoms - but use a water-based lubricant) ..

Here endeth the lesson ..

Woohoo, feel quite lucky with mine then, only ever dripped once, and think that was water that jumped in whilst the door was open...... think the previous owner had new seals somewhere, theres a reciept for £300 odd for t-bar seals......good lad :thumbsup:
