    Anyone know if the seal just pops into grooves or does it have to be applied with 3M adhesive? I've never taken the cab off, but it looks like it is starting to leak inside behind the driver's seat. Carpet is a tad damp after a hard rain. It is right behind the driver's seat where the carpet (floor board) starts to tilt towards the door. Probably an area about 5"X7". I would think the seal just pops into some grooves given that it was designed to come off and on. Anyone have the part numbers for the seals, so I can check out gmpartsdirect.com?

    The outer seal is held on by 3m adhesive. And if the top has never been taken off, have fun removing the old seal. Mine was a B!*#H to get off. LMC carries them for $20 or so. I don't have a part number handy. I believe the inner seal slides into a groove but I've never taken that one off so I'm not sure.

    The inner seal is glued to the cab. I am trying to replace mine right now and the glue that's been on mine for 12 yrs is not meant to come off. Replacing it and getting a good seal is just like painting, it's all in the surface prep.
