B Post Pillar

Post by TONYT25T25 »

Ref B Post pillar, does the round hole at the base of these need to have a grommet fitted, mine are quite solid but looking on internet replacement ones have a hole in them next to the curved bit which fits over the jacking point is the hole for drainage or inspection.

if youve got a hole and its in good order then fit a grommet and further up the b post inside there is a larger grommet, poke the dynax or equivalent in there and dose it

Thanks no sign of other hole above apart from large aperture/conduit which I believe used to be part of the heating system feeding the rear of the vehicle before it was converted to a campervan and blocked off with internal panelling.  Can understand how water could get in there especially if you have bad front door seals. I have since sealed these off as they serve no purpose apart from allowing the ingress of water between the door into the B post pillar.

sorry for intruding on this post but I've been trying to contact Plasticman about a reply to a post from 2016 to get more information about window seals. If you're out there Plasticman, what's the best way to contact you?
