Dew Wipe Install (Page 1/1)

I'm finally getting around to installing my new dew wipes. It seems that every thread on the procedure is either referencing a dead link or the pictures that were helping to explain have gone away.

Does anyone have a good link with pics to do this?

When I did mine, back in 2009 or so I used jstricker's excellent article from 2006. While the text is still there, the pictures are gone.

Fortunately for you I saved it all and created a pdf of it which can be had from here:

When I installed mine, I used some small drill screws that I found at Lowe’s marked ‘Truss Washer Lath Self Drill’ 8x1/2. They had a wide and very shallow head.

The original post is here so you can read all the comments as well:


Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

When Dew Wipe(s) are bad...
The whole door needs attention because of the huge amount of dirt gets it.

Window Tracks and the rest of the regulator is likely prublems because of dirt, rust and have loose parts and only replace the dew wipes doesn't help much.
