    My one year old MS seems to have a little more wind noise than it did when it was new. I suspect it is door gasket related. Is there a recommended maintenance protocol for keeping the gaskets from degrading?

    I’ve not seen anything recommended for this, I’ll start off with. However, I have some 3M Silicone spray I use in the winter to keep the seals from sticking to the glass in extreme cold. I would think that would be the sort of thing you could use if you think your seals are losing flexibility or just to try on one to see if helps.
