Oddly mottled rubber window seals

Post by golfergirl28 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 4:07 pm

New to forum and have already posted this question elsewhere on the forum......wrong place, I suspect.
My new Q2 has very odd mottled grey/black window seals. I first thought it was pattern! But it's clearly not as it's very irregular and doesn't look good. Has anyone else experienced this? my A1 didn't have this issue.

Do you have any photos? Might just need cleaning/polishing. We have the same mottled rubber window seals, on both our Audi Q2 and Audi A2, but they do come off with a good polish or wax.

Why exactly did you create 2 identical topics here?

Squillaudi, I already explained that. I'm new to the forum and posted in the wrong place. Sorry, for offending you!!

You didn't offend me at all. :)
But you can ask an admin to delete one of the topics...

Golfergirl l don't think Squillaudi meant any harm. Have you tried using wax/polish on the window seals?

Took car to the dealer. It seems the valeters had flagged up this issue.......... and it seems to be only with Q2s. No one seems to know the cause though it would appear that the side of the car in direct sun is much worse. This is also the case with the Q2s in the showroom.
Anyway they will take the car in in a couple of weeks and see what they can do. Will post the results.

Will have a look in the morning but haven't notice anything obvious, please do keep us posted on what the dealer says!

I've noticed exactly the same issue with the window seals on my 7-month-old Q2. I was intending to raise it with my dealer, but perhaps I'll wait to see your report back.
