    3288 MY side window seals/track replacements-gctid361786

    I have a 1988 3288MY. I need to replace the window seals. I believe I found the seals/tracks from a local Bayliner dealer, just can't figure out how to get the windows out to replace them. Any tips form anyone? Thank you.

    I replaced mine without removing the windows. Lots of soapy wate as a lubricantand pulled them through with a cord attached to the track

      Here is my post from a few weeks ago:

      If they are like most bayliners of that era, you will have to "pull" the seal out of the bottom and top, then the glass can likely be lifted out of the frame. If you can slide the window open, then pry up the bottom the seal from the open end of the window and pull on BOTH the window and the seal, hold the seal and push the window open again, pull on BOTH the window and the seal, keep repeating until you have the bottom seal removed. The top seal should now be easy to remove using the same procedure.

      To install the new seals, you will have to reverse the process; with the window partially open, slide the seal over the top of the window and push on BOTH the window and seal while opening the window, partially close the window and repeat until the seal is fully seated. Repeat the process on the bottom seal.

      Hope this helps.

        Probably won't be able to get them out. My wife and I did the job in an afternoon by one holding up each window while the other pulled out the old rubber. (usually comes out in pieces) Same way to put the new ones in. I used plumbers grease on the new rubber, then pushed or pulled with a small offset needle nose pliers, or what ever worked. Takes a little patience buy you'll get it. By the way I got my rubber tracks from an auto body shop. Just took them a little piece of the old one, and they matched it right up. Think the cost was about $20 an 8 foot length. Good luck, Jeff

            Replaced one side last year and plan to complete the other side this year. I used spray-on silicone to install seals (with glass in place). It tooks some time be patient. You will definite reduce the friction. Start with the bottom piece first then the top piece.

              I just finished replacing both sides this winter as well as painting the window frame. I was able to to completely remove the windows. To do this you must remove the metal pieces on the glass where the two meet when the window is closed. Pull out just the top track at this time. When the track is out you will be able to lift the window up and swing out the bottom. Once all the windows are out you just have to pull out the old track. Replacing the track is just the opposite. Put the bottom track in first the put in the windows. You will be able to slide in the top track with very little effort. I found the new track on amazon for only 11 bucks for each 8 foot piece. You will need 18 pieces to do the entire job if you want to replace all the track(including the verticle), without and seams. It was a big job but what a difference. Definitely worth doing

                This is on my to-do list as well. Do you have a link to the track on amazon?

                  This is on my list as well. The link would be very helpful. Did you say you needed 18 pieces of the 8 foot tracking?

                    Baggins, Hope you don't mind if I hijack this thread, same subject. Where did you get your seals? Does anyone know where can I find new window seals for my 3218?

                      I know it says this is for a car but it is an exact match to what bayliner used. When I started this project I figured I needed 8 pieces. I didn't take into account there are two tracks on each side. If you want to do the project with no seams 18 would be what you need.

                          Not a problem. Just saw your post. My replacement project is still in limbo. I think I ordered my seals from a local Bayliner dealer here in the balitmore area. They are still in the box and I think I still have the receipt. I will check this weekend and get back to you if you have not already found them.

                            New problem. My middle window was shattered recently, just saw it when checking on boat. No other damage or vandalism on the pier. I think a fisherman dinged it with his sinker and it shattered. So now I not only need to repalce the seal, but the window as well. Does anyone know a good source to get a replacement window, or should I just try and get it locally. Thanks
