Door rubbers installation tips?
« on: 14 May 2020, 03:49 PM »
Hi all, I have received all four door rubbers and I am looking to install them in the next few days. Any tips to look out for? Thanks in advance.

Make sure to clean the channels really well before installation of the new seal.  I also used my fave silicone grease to ease the new seals into the channel.

Make note as I believe there are a few small spots where adhesive was use.
