I just replaced both of my window seals. Both sides had gaps at the front of about .25" which let in water, lots of water. Fortunately, it was easier than expected. I pried up the trim with a plastic trim tool. The old seals pulled out of the trim pieces easily. Inserting the new seals was difficult until I figured to pull the seal into the slot rather than pushing. I didn't need any lube but it did become rather difficult when the seals were almost in, I had to pull and push along the length of the seal at the same time. The seal was too long but since it is rubber, it compressed so that the ends were preloaded which made for a great fit. Putting the trim back in was easy I just used the side of my fist to push the trim back in. Both sides took about 15 minutes in total.
