I bought the weatherstripping for the rear doors for my 2001 E55 AMG. Having not replaced weatherstripping before, I was hoping for some advice on doing this replacement. Do I just pull the old weatherstripping out and fit the new in? Any adhesive? I was hoping to get the weatherstripping for the front doors but they are currently unavailable from autohausaz. Any hlp/advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Are you convinced yours are shot? Griot's sells a rubber prep and a preservative (2 products) that look good. I bought some but have yet to use them. My car is the same vintage as yours and mine look as good as new, but YMMV of course!

They are a bit torn in spots. Mostly I wanted to do as much preventative stuff before winter hits. Sealing up the doors as much as possible is towards that end.
Raymond-thank you for the information. I will check for corrosion in those area and see if my car falls into that VIN range.
