“The most important and time consuming work is removing the old seals. Focus on clean, clean, clean. Clean the old residue from the door channels, mirror cushion area, door hinge area and anywhere else you are replacing the seals. The finest adhesive in the world will not adhere to that sticky, gooey residue that was once a quality light seal. Proper installation will give you thousands of light tight exposures.”

Yashica cameras were made by Kyocera Japan. Though no longer making film cameras, what they are doing  here

USCamera Light Seal Installation Guide – Yashica FX-103 Program / FX-D 

Before you do anything, please read the general instructions on removing and installing light seals here.

Next,  take all of the seals out of the kit and lay them out on your work area. This kit includes,

2 x 1mm – back cover channel seals on the camera body
1 x 2mm – back cover seal above the door latch plate
1 x 2mm – back cover latch plate seal
1 x 2mm – back cover hinge seal for camera body
1 x 2mm – mirror cushion

Tech Note. If you look at the hinge side of the back cover. you will notice a very small slotted screw attached to the hinge pin.  That pin will retract if you push straight down on the screw with your finger nail.  Generally, it is much easier to work on the film back when it is not attached to the camera.

Door channel seal / latch plate seal, back cover. You must first install the small 2mm thick seal near the top right corner, just above the door latch plate, as indicated in the first picture below. Then install the 3mm thick seal (white backing) on the latch plate, starting at the top with the about 1mm – 2mm of the seal overlapping the small seal you installed 1st,  as shown in the second picture.

Hinge seal, camera body.  Install this seal on the camera body, back cover hinge side, centering the seal between the top and bottom edges of the back cover.

Door channel seals, camera body. Install the upper and lower back cover channel seals starting at the hinge side on the camera body, working from right to left. The upper channel has the counter actuation lever. You will need to install this seal as close to each side of the counter lever opening as possible.

Mirror cushion.  Now, with the utmost care, remove the old and install the new mirror cushion.  Remember if any thing touches the focusing screen, it will likely be permanently damaged.
