You can't buy the scuttle panel's rubber seal separately unless you can find something you can make fit. It doesn't actually do anything anyway, so don't worry about it.

The problem is they will all most likely have the rubber seal in the same condition.

Talking

It's part of the scuttle and isn't sold seperatly. They perish, dry out and shrink. They DO actually form a loose seal across the bottom edge of the windscreen, designed to channel rain water away. It also stops debris ( leaves and stuff) from finding its way into the cavity where your wiper mechanism is housed and blocking up the drainage holes. Many people think when their car has wet carpets the screen is leaking, but most of the time the drainage holes are blocked and the water level rises and finds its way into the car behind the dash.

I removed the perished bit ( leaving the scuttle in place) and ran a line of sealant across the top to seal it up.

Another alternative would be to find something like a Primera or something similar, and use the part from its scuttle, it only held on with double sided tape.

As your resident windscreen fitter, I've come across a few!!!

It doesn't stop rain water getting into the area where the wiper linkage is, those vents in the scuttle panel let it in anyway.

True, it's not a seal and doesn't stop water getting in. It's supposed to help channel the water away.
