Do VGC flush-fit leak like OEM sliding windows?

Hi All,
I am selecting windows to fit to a swb panel T6 and really like the flush fit sliders from VGC. Can anyone advise how prone to leaks these particular windows are as I know the older OEM flush sliders were leaky.
If there is mention of VGC slider leaks my back up plan is indented sliders from SGi, not as nice but more important to avoid risk of leaking.
Many thanks

I cant say for sure, but I cant remember reading about these leaking at all.

I think transporterhq are going to be releasing flush sliding windows soon. Might be another option.

Thanks for replying.
I called TransporterHQ and their new slides hit the sales floor in late October, prices similarly to vgc sliders at £350ish.
Do sound good as like the vgc flush slides with added drains on inside.
Not sure I can wait that long but a very decent shout!

No, mine have not leaked in the two years they’ve been fitted.

Thanks everyone.
I’m going to go with the VGC sliders as I can’t wait for the transporterHQ’s, although they would be the ones to have if available.

I had mine fitted. Haven’t ever fitted any but here’s what I’d advise:

It’s worth fitting B-pillar vinyl before fitting windows (if that’s your thingfitting after is a pain).

If you’re fitting rear windows, make sure you spread the black adhesive / primer (whatever it is) wide in the gap between front and rear so you don’t have the body colour showing.

And on the adhesive: I recall my fitter saying it should only be spread in one direction, as it acts similar to tiny Velcro hooks and loops - applying it in a back and forth motion means the loops are not laid out properly. If that makes sense.

Good luck. Let us know how it goes. And welcome to the forum!

I bought the @VGC Ltd flush window although it looks very nice it has has leaked from day one and with no drain holes the water ends up on the floor. I found the after sales from them very disappointing after contacting them about the issue they basically just ignored the it.
