NAPA goo for door seals during freezing weather

Someone, somewhere, on this site, mentioned a NAPA part #, (heck, even had the picture) of a chemical to put on door seals/rubber. This was to keep them from sticking and freezing shut during freezing weather.

What was that stuff? I have been looking and searching for an hour, (my wife brought that up) with no luck!

Re: NAPA goo for door seals during freezing weather

Try Silicone Spray, just soak the rubber parts down, always worked for me when in school in Iowa.

It's called silglyde. It's a silicone paste that comes in a tube. I think it will be in their Balkamp catalog. I don't know the part mumber.

Re: NAPA goo for door seals during freezing weather

That Silglyde really works,but it is a mess to use. The silicone spray works justs as well if you use it yearly. Spray down all of your weatherstripping At least that was my experince when I lived in the cold country.

Re: NAPA goo for door seals during freezing weather

I second that. My drivers window is real slow in the winter. I used the Silglyde in the channels, and it does work, but like said above, it smears all over the edge of the window and is hard to clean up. Used some spray silicone in the early fall and it works better and longer. Maybe the wrong application, but that is my experience with both.

Re: NAPA goo for door seals during freezing weather

Spray Silicone works the best in my book. Heck, even my VW Jetta owners manual says to use it. Not to messy and easy to wipe off.

Re: NAPA goo for door seals during freezing weather

Looks like they have changed the package. Here is the new package. The difference between this and spray silicone for door seal application is night and day.

Re: NAPA goo for door seals during freezing weather

For some reason the NAPA system will not let me view your link. In what ways do you mean the difference is night and day? This is better than the spray, the spray is better, just curious?

Re: NAPA goo for door seals during freezing weather

The link works for me. The part number is 7651346. You can probably go to NAPA online chemical catalog and find it with that number. It's a lot more time consuming to apply the paste because you have to rub it in. The end result is a better job because of a better application and it forces you to clean the rubber while rubbing it in. I rub it on liberally then wipe off as much as I can.

Re: NAPA goo for door seals during freezing weather

I have always cleaned the rubber then applied the spray. So does the goo last longer? Does it keep the rubber in good shape longer?
