Rubber FAQ

This FAQ is an attempt to identify all rubber needs for an e9 restoration. Note that this does not include engine/driveline/suspension bushings and seals. Given that W&N carries most of these parts, a link to their website was provided to assist the identification process. If you have additions, please reply below!

I have created a spreadsheet with all rubber part numbers and book location for Mark to review, will post soon. That rear inner fender one is not shown even though it exists. Parts w/o a part number that are NLA may not be on the list.
I am highly impressed with the turnaround from @HB Chris! I’ll try to add some of the NLA stuff with a part number. It is helpful for folks like me who still need to restore their car.

Edit: Thanks to @m73 for finding a few elusive fender seal pics!

Figure it costs about 2,000€ to 2,500€ to replace all of the rubber on your vehicle (as of September 2020).

You can see where we are going with this. Not very mobile-friendly due to the tables. If you need this much rubber I would advise that you site down in front of a computer. :D

Note:

Need to add tail light gaskets

Can’t it just link to xls or pdf?
Certainly, but wanted to keep the content within the forum, as we did with the other FAQ’s. The format works IMO, and anyone attempting to fully restore their car will be miles ahead with this info.

Thank you for compiling the vast majority.

About the separate part parts for the foam. The goal is to aid in restoration not to catalog a factory inventory. An owner restoring his/her car isn’t concerned if a gasket wasn’t offered separately from the dealer. If they need it, they need it.
