What is Automotive Weatherstripping and where is it Located?
Automotive weatherstripping, also commonly referred to as weatherstrips, weather seals, or just seals, plays a major role in sealing the inside of your vehicle and keeping it protected from all of the various outside elements like rain, snow, dirt, wind and other debris. Weatherstrips are made of a rubber material and seal all of the edges of your car or truck’s doors, windows, windshield, trunk, hood, etc, so that nothing can enter the vehicle or get out through the gaps. They are most commonly held into place using one or a combination of these items, depending on the application: weatherstrip adhesive, clips, glue, screws and pressure.
There are many different types of weather seals available for automobiles these days and that’s because, over the past 100 years, all kinds of makes and models have rolled off of the assembly lines. The type and location of weatherstripping on a vehicle is dependent on the particular make and model. Generally speaking, a car or truck will at the very least have door, window, windshield, roof, trunk / rear hatch / tailgate and some type of body weatherstripping. To learn more, here is an in-depth guide that provides details on most of the different types of weatherstripping you will find on cars and trucks these days.
