Your Hyundai vehicle came from the factory complete with weather stripping that was added to protect your passenger space against wind, rain, dirt, and debris. This rubber and plastic slat system lines the windows and door edges, forming a seal to prevent unwanted intrusion by the elements. An added benefit? Weather stripping helps to deaden the din of outside road noise, as well as muffle the sound of your door closing.
How to Check for Failing Weather Stripping
Over time, weather stripping can wear out. If you notice air is whistling through your closed windows or doors, or see water spots, you should check your weather stripping for cracks or brittle bits. If you find any, replace it as soon as possible.
How to Install New Weather Stripping
Start by removing any screws holding down the old weather strip. Then clear away any adhesive that remains, and thoroughly dry the area. Put down a layer of new adhesive, press the new weather strip into the channel, carefully line it up, and press gently into place. If you removed any screws, put them pack into place.
You'll want to make sure that your new weather stripping is the same kind, length, and width as the original piece that you're replacing. Choosing to use genuine OEM weather stripping is the best way to ensure that compatibility, since that’s the only weather stripping guaranteed to fit your model.
