Default Replacing window weather stripping?

Well my left window squeaks like hell if its wet at all, and i know its because of bad stripping. I went to the dealer under warranty and they ordered one but that was 6k miles ago and im long out of warranty. Is it something i can do easiliy at home? Im not sure if it just pops in or i need to access it from behind. Also anyone know a good place to order?

This may help you:

TacoBill's How-To on MoleSkin

Edit: Maybe I misunderstood what you were saying, if so, that's probably not going to help at all, lol.

Silicone (Ford part # XL-6) the weaterstripping where it meets the glass
like the Owners Manual recommends doing for proper maintenance.
Page 222 in the 05' Owners Manual


Bad weathstripping, go stand in the corner until
you can learn not to squeek.

Where can i buy silicone? and is it the same as a silicone type sealer? i used some silicone stuff on my jet ski recently and noticed it left a nice shine when wiped on any surface.

I use spray silicone lubricant. Just be sure you don't spray it directly onto the weatherstripping, or you will have a mess! Spray the lubricant onto a towel, and apply the lubricant using the towel.

Late Model Restoration has weather stripping because they know our windows squeak and our convertible tops leak when they're cold above 90 mph.


uh...what?
