    windows (air)

    I can hear air coming through my windows when I am haulin a$$. I have T-tops and also when it rains or when I wash my car I get water on the inside. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? Can anybody help?

    My life is a

    happens to me too...i'd say to keep the rubber seals well conditioned with back-to-black or armor-all so they don't dry out and split.

    I forgot what type of oil works, but if you rub a certain kind into the material thats supposed to keep the inside dry, it will make that material expand again getting rid of drips as well as air noise.

    My life is a

    the following is from my car club website:

    The only thing that I know of that will swell the rubber around the windows, and I am not sure if this will help your problem is Transmittion fluid. I know that if you have a seal leak around the heads or oil pan, that adding a small amount of transmittion oil to your reg oil will cause the gasket to swell and stop the leak, but just for a little while. Hope this might help you out

    and

    Try some silicone lubricant. Be careful that you don't use some petroleum based lubricant or treatment because it may eat the rubber weatherstripping.

    and another one:

    Dry silicone spray helps seals and weather strips stay soft, but I wouldn't try to "swell" a weather strip. If it comes down to it, have it replaced, and keep it coated with silicone.

    I'll post this over here also. One of the car shows on TV had a demo on the same problem. They rolled the window up with a piece of paper between the glass and the door. Then pulled the paper along the wondow. When the tension went away that was the spot that was leaking. They rolled the weatherstrip away from the body with their fingers and slipped a heavy piece of cord behind it. There is probably something special for this but a heavy string or very thin rope would probably work. Silicone die-electric grease is the correct thing to use to keep the seals in good shape.
