240 Moonroof Seal or Gasket Piping 200

Hello,

For some reason, Volvo USA has been eliminating part numbers from their available inventory even though the parts are still available from their warehouses in Sweden.

Up until recently, my local dealership was willing to assist in getting some of the number reinstated. However, the parts manager whom I've known for over 25 years since he was a fairly new parts counter person says that Volvo made it difficult and it was taking too much time so he won't do it anymore.

We have always used 3M 08008 black weatherstrip adhesive for all glue on body seals used on the Volvos we work on. The painted metal surfaces have to be scrupulously clean and you have to remove any remaining mold release on the seals. You also have to follow the instructions for the use of the glue and apply very thin coats. Large blobs don't cure properly and won't hold the seals properly.

For some of the door seals, I have to literally wash and scrub the seals to remove the mold release.
