when summmerizing today I noticed that the gaskets ont he two FF's sems to be off track. Sure enough after the exterior wash there was bit of moister on the floor.
So I first opened the FF's and while the front one opened fine, the rear one seemed to bind a bit and I had to manually open it. I re-attached the gaskets that had lifted up and were drooping down on the vent flashing. So much for those gripping edges of the gasket...sure didn't seem to hold it that tight in the groove. It still seemed to bind so I laid a bead of WD-40 across the hinges which are on the forward edge figuring rain and road grime was limiting the hinge action. No luck. Since I was planning on silocone'g
the window seals, what the heck, I'll do the FF gaskets too. After a few more manual attempts, all seemed to break loose. Not sure if it was the silicone seal application or the WD 40 on the hinges, or a combo but all is a go now.
I'll add the FF gaskets to the windows seal maintenance program.
