On the door side, there are 3 areas (shown in the arrows). I just applied Vinylex to the door seal shown with red arrows. That's the part that actually contacts the Shadowline trim and causes the squeaks. You don't have to apply anything to the felt flocking or the larger main rubber door seal.

Hope that helps.
328idogg--thanks for posting the link to this thread on my similar thread. And thanks for the tips and pictures here. I'm going to give this a try before turning to my dealer.
