Default Replaced weather stripping, window hangs

Hey guys, I replaced the weather stripping on my passenger door while I had it all apart. Has a new window regulator as well. Window rolls up and down just fine until the point in the pictures below. I fiddled with it just kinda shoving on the window from below and got it to close all the way, just left it closed in case maybe it would "seat" the rubber or something. Any of you guys that have replaced the weather stripping have any words of wisdom?

Is it on the correct side? They can be installed backwards.

I would also wonder if there isn't a portion that was not trimmed, inside the channel? Take a look-see?

Lol I didn't lube it any, are you supposed to? If so, what kinda lube do you use?

I'm pretty sure I put it in the right side, my old ones were so dried/broken/chunks missing it's hard to really tell for sure.


It fit in the channel without needing any trimming, so I don't think that's a problem.

Lol. A little bit of grease goes a long way. TBH as long as it's silicone-based and won't eat rubber I don't think it really matters all that much what kind you use. I typically use silicone wheel bearing grease for things like that and haven't had any issues.

Lol, looked back at my other thread and the same suggestion was there. My memory is dildos after having rona. I ordered a silicone grease spray from the local AutoZone, I'll run out and pick it up tomorrow during lunch, see if that does the job.


Thanks gents.

If the rubber is grabbing the windows, use talcum powder/baby powder on the rubber surface.


Genuine aerosol silicone lube is fine for the window channels

Hey OGB,

Do you have big speakers in the doors?

When I installed big speakers, the windows would roll down until they hit the screws about where you are having problems.
