Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone can explain to me how to install the add glass and panel glass on my pump. Also, do I need to cut the rubber moulding at each corner or is the moulding one continuos piece?

It is one continuous piece of rubber gasket.

To install it, use a small string, insert the string in the groove of the rubber, then pull the string out pushing on the glass and it will roll the rubber over the edge of the glass.

Use plenty of soapy water or something else for lubricant. I use glass cleaner.
FREEDOM oil items wanted.

This is what I did, I used one continuos piece of rubber but cut the corners of the inside channel off(where the glass sits). Hope this helps

AntG, did you use the string method like ryan suggested?? Or did you put the rubber on the door first then install the glass?? I'm really having a hard time getting mine installed!

Put the rubber seal on the door first. Use WD40 as a lubricant and slip one edge of the ad glass into the groove (in rubber seal) and work the remaining edge of rubber seal over the edge of the ad glass.
