Easier said than done Rich. Mine passenger side one was in a right state that started with just a couple of bulges. I tried the push them back under but sprang back out. I decided to listen the wing which is tricky due to the exhaust being so close, and there being a mixture of bolts and screws holding the wing to the body. I then managed to pull the thin end of the beading from between the wing, thus pulling the beading in, but you have to be so precise where you pull, as myvinitial attempt ended up looking like the ripples in a walls vienetta. Looks much now but was labourous. It's made more difficult as the bolts and screws, screw through the beading which means it doesn't freely move as much as you'd like.

I have never had to do it on my cars, it sounded such a fidget on yours but a job needed doing.

Good morning. Re; your interest in RAF. Have you read The Most Dangerous Enemy, by Stephen Bungay ? I ask because ewe watched Thirteen Hours on Netflix last night and it promote the traditional view of The Battle of Britain. There was hardly any mention of Keith Park for example. Anyway for those with an interest in the subject it will make for an interesting and challenging read.History is fascinating. Perhaps Howard would like it.

Just got back from lunch at Tom's garden centre tea rooms on Maldon Rd Tiptree, so impressed with excellent food well priced. Only small but superb. Traffic around Maldon horrendous due road closures/road works so enjoyed a lengthy detour and filled up at Gulf in Mayland at 1.59.9 result happy3

It was so fiddly. I guess mine originally started to bulge when trying to clean between the beading and the body work. It wasn't as tight as the drivers side and after living it and the being over zealous with a wooden scewer scraping out some crud, the beading had stretched away from the body, which would make it slightly thinner, but when teased, became thicker and wouldn't go back between the gap. I ended having to listen the wing sufficiently, to then use some needle nose pliers to gently pull the beading in, and then retighten the bolts, before I moved on to the next bulgy ripple. Not perfect now, but much better. I just regularly squirt acf50 into the gap as a precaution.
