its not the stiffness of the round part of the seal thats the problem its the thickness of the rubber itself... When the round part gets crushed as the door closes, its thicker than stock. Yes desert heat does help but it takes more then 1 day .

I found that the corners where they built up the rubber for strength were also an issue.

Thanks guys. I'm going to use my heat gun on the weatherstripping and see if that solves the problem.

I'm gonna try the heat gun too. It's more direct on it than the sun. It was so hot in South Dakota my outside mirror glass was falling out.

same exact problem as you all. My new door seals are still making things difficult 2 years after I put them on...

I sound up pulling it off and getting self adhesive. I bought .75x.75 hollow foam from Amazon. I roughed up the paint with a body shop sanding brillo, then wiped it down with lacquer thinner. Put the rubber on,didn't open doors for 2days. I can't g get it off. My doors don't leak, they close nice, and it doesn't look too bad. If you go that way cut those flat parts off the ends of the original rubbers and glue them on, then start the new rubber from there. That fills the gap between the doors. They are on the top and bottom of the 40 door.
I've only done the side doors, the rest aren't too bad. I did the back doors a long time ago with original stuff and it's still kinda tight.
