    I just bought all new window rubbers and seals from LMC. They just got here and there are no instructions. Now before you consider me a dummy, I just want to make sure there are no tricks or dumb thing I should know about. Is it as easy as just ripping the old crusty stuff out and pushing the new stuff in? Do you have to glue the new stuff? I know this seems trivial to most, but please and honest answer will do.


    By the way...I already know I'm a dumb a$$ :D :D :D

    most of it is rip out the old, replace with the new
    but there are some parts that require more attention, a few that i know of:
    Vent window seals - MAJOR PITA to get them on... if you have them you will quickly figure out what i mean
    Windshield seals - very prone to leakage in lower corners, make sure that everything is properly seatted before calling it "done"

    Yea, sometimes those seals from LMC and such aren't always worth the truble. I would of gone to a GM deal and gotten the factory seals. The extra price isn't much and will be worth it when you go to install them. When I redo my window seals I'm just going to get them from GM.
