Completely different, the Cabrio is hard top (no door frame around top of glass. Also, the Cabrio door is larger (more like 2dr Golf / GTI door).

A lot of the Cabrio weatherstrip is in the folding top so it's not going to be anything like the Jetta.

Sorry about that.

Steve

Never looked at door seals between the two but I doubt it's the same. The Mk4 is completely different beast. You could take a look though, but there's not much from a Mk4 that will work on Mk3 cars.

Clean, untorn door seals for mk3s are quickly becoming unobtanium. I suggest grabbing every decent one you find. The rear seals are a little shorter than the front door seals so front door seals are more useful (you can cut em down with a dremel if need be.)

That being said nothing door-related from the Cabrio will fit, given that it is a convertible and the Jetta /golf is not.

Pretty much nothing from the mk4 will fit a mk3.
