Weatherstrip Protection/Maintenance

The users manual says to maintain your weatherstrips that you should use Weatherstrip Lubricant (GM Part #3634770) or Dielectric Silicone Grease (GM Part #12345579). I have heard that silicone should not be used on weatherstripping. The GM Lubricant is very-very expensive. What is the best to use? I see that others have suggested using 1Z Einszett Rubber Care Stick Gummi Pflege. Are there other sources/items that can be used. What has been your experience.

Re: Weatherstrip Protection/Maintenance

Some folks will use 303 protectant on these as it gives fabulous UV protection and will help keep the rubber supple.

PB Trim Restorer for me, a little goes a long way. A 16oz bottle will last years and it smells like coconut to boot.

ABSOLUTELY AGREE! Much cheaper per oz. than Gummi. Much more versatile too. Great for interior too. I spray directly on a microfiber glove and use fingers to apply to weather stripping. also extends wiper life and keeps plastic and vinyl looking new for years. A must for any detailers arsenal IMO.
