I've decided to join the aero screen club for awhile.
While I have the windscreen off I thought I'd replace the upper and lower rubbers which luckily I have in my spares.
How have others replaced the seals? Does the windscreen have to be dismantled to replace them?

Ensure you have the bottom seal the correct way, use soap solution as lubricant and start pushing into the groove from centre of screen. I used the rounded end of a 12" steel rule to push the rib into the slot as screwdrivers and the like can damage the seal and the fingers. Leave excess each side and trim to length after a couple of days as the rubber seal will "shrink" a bit.

Thanks Pete. It went in well.
