If for any reason you have to change remove your front windshield you will need a new rubbers seal. Even after just a few years the rubber gets hard and not very flexible. If it not new your risk of breaking the glass during removal or replacement is very high. All Mini models after 1991 used this same seal! This seal also works as a great upgrade for early cars as it provides a wider rubber seal around the outside base of the window to further reduce the chances of leaks! For use with windscreen CMB100920.
