Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Removing and installing door inner seal

During production, a sealant is applied to the door inner seals, which are then placed on the door flange and rolled on.
  Note
  When removing the seal, the sealant is distributed across the inside of the seal. The sides are bent upwards slightly when this is being done. If the seal is then refitted, sealing and firm seating are no longer guaranteed.
  Therefore, each seal that is completely removed must be renewed with a so-called “tap-on seal”.
  If a seal has been partially removed, squeeze sides of seal together before installing.
  Removal and installation are described only for the left door inner seal. The right side is similar.
  For reasons of clarity, the rear door is shown removed.
