Window Fuzzy Attachment

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here installed the inner window fuzzies onto the door panel? I saw some old posts that talked about potential fixes but nothing definitive. The original ones were stapled on with a very heavy staples.

The squeegees were attached to the outside stainless piece in the same manner. Is there an adhesive that will remain attached?

Mine were re-installed with small pop rivets after the PO had the car redone in tan velour. They were filed smooth. They lie beneath the fuzz and don't scratch the window. I am currently doing a re-upholstery of the door panels and will use the same method to re-install the fuzz strips. Hope this helps

Cheers, Mike

Thanks, Mike. I guess I'll order the fuzzies and figure out how to attach them. So is there a small diameter pop rivet that is sold for the normal tool, or is there a special tool required?

Nope, no special tool or rivets. 1/8" pop rivets 1/4" depth.

I was givin new Fuzzy's and when I installed them, I opened the "Staple" things and some broke. So I used a large Paper clip, bent into the same shape, drilled out the holes in the Fuzzy and reinstalled like OEM. You can't tell that it's anything other than stock.

Dave, How were you able to get the strips tight enough not to wobble on the door panel?

I bent the clips into as tight of a 90* as possible, marked the holes and drilled them, slid the staple (Paper-clip) thru, pressed on the staple (on the fuzzy side and used a pair of Needle-Nose to pull tight and keep pressure as I bent them inwards. Then I used a weird pair of C-clamp style vise-grips to get behind and give that extra little squeeze.

I also used some rubber cement on both the strip and door panel, to minimize movement and vibration.

I also used a Q-Tip to dab on a little clear coat on the staples to slow the rust down. As raw paper-clips are prone to rust. I would have taken pictures but I didn't have a Digital Camera until about 6 or 7 years ago.

Does that help?
