I just installed GM part numbers 09612538 and 09612539 window felts and they are not fitting right.  I included both the drivers side and passenger side photos.  It's as if the curve is just too high.  I can't make them sit down tight at the end of it.  From the mirror towards the back, everything looks fine, but right at the end it pops up and does not make contact with the door.  What am I missing?

That sucks.  The ones I got from Summit dont fit great but they fit better than that.  Can you bend them to fit

The newer GM parts are not exactly like the originals.  I think it was olds403 over on TAC that noted that the power window wouldn't even close properly because of the extra drag on the window.  His fix was to find a set of NOS pieces and it cured the problem.  As for the fit, mine didn't fit perfect, but they did fit better than what I'm seeing in your pictures.

Great, another $100 bucks down the toilet.
