weatherstripping how do i replace it???

i don't know if this falls under the tech forum but anyway...

my 92 civic LX is just getting old... my weather stripping in the front windows are starting to slide and bunch up... i've used different sprays (no adhesives)... but i'm just gonna replace them...

I need to know how much of a pain it is to replace... do i need to take the door panel off.... (i've always tried getting that off and have yet to succeed...)

i hate wind noise at 80... so i wanna fix this soon...

take off any and all screws on the door and pry the panel out away from the door starting from the bottom and working your way up. i'm not certain about 5th gen civics, but if you have a tweeter mounted by the mirror, you'll need to remove that first by prying it up. after you get the panel loose, lift the panel straight up.

you'll need to remove the platic that covers the door to be able to remove the window. there are two screws holding the window to the bracket. once the window is off, you should be able to figure out how to replace the strip.

nah... not that long. maybe 1 1/2 hours if it's your first time taking apart your car and are afraid of messing something up. once you do one side, the other should only take about 40 minutes. the only tools you'll definately need is a phillips screwdriver, maybe flat tip, 10mm socket and ratchet.

naw I dont think you need to go through all that trouble from what I recall from my bros car all you need to do is roll down the window all the way and pull down the upper portion of weatherstripping intil its down to the window..... them a lil tug will get the weatherstripping out ...... but I would use silicone and spray quite a few down there it helps wonders. this is the stuff glass shops use

give some silicone a try it helps a lot if not then take the next step ..... also roll down your windows and look at where the window rides and see if the weather ship has slipped out of place at all

now how would you get the new one on? the weatherstriping goes all the way down to the bottom of the door panel.

I'm not positive if you are talking about the rubber stripping that seals between the door and the chassis or the rubber that the window slides in.
If you are talking about the rubber that the window slides in, it's really easy to pull out the window, two bolts at the bottom with the inner panel off. Pull out the window with your hands, pull out the stripping, push in the new stuff with your fingers, top rear first, cause it has the sharpest angles to get right then next to the mirror, push the rest to fit. Put back in the window through tilting it front to back and rolling it into place. You’re in business. Took me about 45 minutes to do the first one, and less than 20 minutes to do the second one.
My windows amazingly easy to move now.
