Weather stripping is the name given to the system of rubber and soft-plastic slats that line the edges of car windows and doors. Held in place by screws and an adhesive, it helps to both keep moisture, dirt, and wind out of the cabin and enable car doors to close more quietly.
Unfortunately, weather strips can wear out sooner or later. At that point, they should be replaced. There are symptoms to tell you it's time for a change. Do you hear air moving quickly through your doors or windows? That's one. See any water stains, even if they're just your floor mats? They're another, an indication of possible seepage. The best way to determine when to replace a weather strip, however, is to look for wet channels, worn or brittle spots, and cracks -- spots where it might have failed.
How to install new weather stripping is easy. Most of the time, you can remove any screws, pull away the strip, clean the adhesive off the channel, dry the area, reapply fresh adhesive, and then press a new weather strip gently into the channel. Align it properly and hold it on for a bit. Lastly, change any problematic screws, and the job is done. Just be sure what you use is the same type and length as before.
