Chevrolet Blazer Weatherstrip Seal

Chill Out Inside Your Car with a Well-preserved Chevrolet Blazer Weatherstrip Seal

Harsh weather should not be a reason for your car's interior to get soaked. This is exactly the reason why you have weatherstrip seals installed in your vehicle. It keeps the water and moisture out, while you stay dry and cozy inside your car. To get a long-lasting service from your Chevrolet Blazer weatherstrip seal, it's paramount that you do these car care habits:

  • Apply an aftermarket protectant on the weatherstrip seals to prevent sun damage.

If you've had the chance to read the user manual that came with the weatherstrip seal package, you would realize that the weatherstripping requires some care and maintenance every once in a while. And one way to accomplish this is by applying some weatherstrip lubricant. Keep in mind that the harsh rays of the sun can cause premature deterioration, leading to the weatherstrip seals becoming hard and eventually cracking.

  • Repair damaged weatherstripping once detected.

Don't let a small rupture in the strippings turn into a huge mess. The first time you spot a crack or damage on the weatherstrip seals, take action immediately. Have a look at the damage to see if it can still be repaired or not. If you find the damage to be too deep, replacing the weatherstrip seals altogether might be more suitable.

  • Keep the weatherstrip seals free from dirt and grime.

Using only common household items, such as soap and water, cleaning your Chevrolet Blazer weatherstrip seals is quick and simple. All you have to do is to wash the strippings with warm, soapy water and a sponge. Make sure you rinse the rubber seals thoroughly to remove any soap residue. You may also want to apply some dielectric silicone grease over all of the weatherstrippings. Leave it for 2-3 minutes before wiping it off with a clean cloth. The dielectric silicone grease helps restore the shine on your vehicle's weather strip seals, and enhances the strippings' capacity to bead away water. Although you can do without the silicone grease, your weatherstrip seals will not return to its shiny state and look dull even after cleaning it.

  • Keeping Rainwater Out By Installing a Chevrolet Blazer Weatherstrip Seal

    Staying dry throughout your trip, especially when driving under heavy rains, is made possible—thanks to your vehicle's weatherstripping. It keeps the rainwater out of your vehicle, and saves the interior from getting soaked. However, your Chevrolet Blazer weatherstrip seal may fail to do this if it gets worn or damaged over time. When it's time to replace the weatherstrip seals, here are a few things to keep in mind:

    • Take out the stock weatherstripping for comparison.

    If you are looking for an aftermarket replacement for your weatherstrip seals, getting the one that's designed for your vehicle is a major factor. To verify that the weatherstripping you have purchased is the same with the stock, remove the old stripping from your car. While the stock seals are out, bring the new stripping and compare it with the old one. It should have the same shape and thickness, as well as similar holes, channels, and rubber studs on the inner part. This guarantees that the new weatherstrip seal will fit snugly on the frame.

    • Completely remove old adhesive from the frame.

    Once you remove the stock weatherstripping from your car, you may notice that some adhesive gets left on the frame. You can use a weatherstrip remover to get rid of the old adhesive before applying the new one. Spray the solution around the area and wait for the old adhesive to soften before scraping it off. In addition, you may want to pry the rubber studs out of the holes they're connected to. Exercise caution when prying the studs so that you don't damage the paint or the trim around the frame. To avoid scratching the other parts while prying the studs out, you may want to ask help from a trained mechanic or an experienced friend.

    • Check if the new weatherstrip seal is clean.

    Before you apply the new weatherstrip seal, inspect it for signs of defects such as bumps and rough spots. To ensure that it's clean during the installation, rinse off the stripping and dry it thoroughly. You can also use a fine-grain sandpaper to even out the bumps.
