[DML] Re: Replacing door weatherstripping

Clean the spot on the doors that the seal rubs against with alcohol.
Spray some silicone lubricant on a rag and wipe it onto the door
seals. Thicker seals won't necessaraly help. They are for cars that
have a large gap when the doors are closed. Most cars are fine with
the standard size seal. Do not try to compensate for old, dead door
seals by adjusting the doors to close tighter. Replace the seals if
they are over 10 years old. When the rubber gets old it gets "sticky"
