I want to run rope or rubber tubing inside my trunk rubber. Want to run a feeder line first but finding it a little tough to make the corners. Will the weatherstripping come off/go back in easily w/out tearing, etc?
You can remove the rubber, but it may be a pain to reinstall it.
Use a piece of 3/16 or 1/4 clear vinyl tubing, type used in aquariums. Coat it with silicone GREASE and slide it in from one end til you get it past the second bend. The do the same from the other side. You don't have to get it completely around the entire seal, Just past the bend at the rear.
I did this in my '04 and my '12. Keeps the trunk lid from rubbing the bottom.
