E90 driver door seals. Where to put gummi?

So I have the infamous driver door squeaks from the seals and when I took it to the dealer they lubed it up and it went away for a month.

Now it\'s back but instead of wasting time going back in, I bought the gummi pflege and put it on the seals on the car and on the door but sound didn\'t go away. I think I put on the wrong place.

Where exactly does the stuff go? Thanks

instead of that stuff use Honda shin-etsu rubber grease. its a cream lubricant for rubber, gummi is less effective cause its liquid

Gummi pfledge, 303, etc. never really worked well for me, at least not for very long. I tried lubricating the seals with Krytox grease (available on Amazon) a couple of weeks ago and no more noises so far. The seal you're looking for is the one at the top of the door connected to the felt strip.

this stuff is imported from Japan. you rub it in, let it absorb (say 30 min), and remove leftovers

So I have to kinda get deep in the cracks? I've just lubed the visible surface where I believe makes contact with the seal on the body.
