    I have a persistent leak in my helmhouse top sliding window at the rubber level. ‘creeping crack cure’ would not help but it was solved 3 years ago using Simson CA adhesive. Unfortunatly the leak recently appeared again.
    Using a link (https://www.sealsdirect.co.uk) in these fora I recently received Seals+Direct catalog, likely the seal provider for Siltalia around 1978
    I suspect I could solve my leak problem by simply replacing the rubber around the persplex frame. I guess one of their ‘rubber square U channel’ is the good candidate (page 24 of their catalogue), it may also be ‘S shapped window rubber’ (page 42) ?
    Has anyone already replaced this rubber seal, which type and reference is it ? is there good recommandations to follow ?

     

    Thanks in advance.
