Usually one of the first things that should be replaced on any car or truck is the seals, or weather stripping, on the doors. You'll know it's time when you notice a sudden increase in road noise when the windows are rolled up or when leaks from rain storms or car washes appear. Replacing car door seals is a quick, easy car repair project. To completely change out a set car door seals might take you about an hour to two hours at most, so feel free to do it at any time.

You should be able to find some replacement door seals at any automotive parts store. You can always get some from the local dealer for your car. While the price may be higher, they should have them.

Remove the old seals by gripping it and pulling. Insert the appropriate end of the new seal into the location of the old weather seal. There might be some places where you need to use an additional tool to help get it in, but you really shouldn't need anything more than a straight-edge screwdriver to help insert it into the metal clamps of the door.
