Oh you are right, the weatherstrip then is the same thing but for the front doors right?
So I'll use some silicon on the channels, any type of silicone suggestion?

The silicone should be clear so you don't see it and a paste as you want it to stay put, I just used a small screwdriver to apply it inside the contact areas of the channel. i'm sure there are guys here with other ideas that may well work as well? Sil Glide is the product I have used but Mercedes has many uses for it so it doesn't go to waste. You might find it on Ebay as well.
