The system of rubber and soft plastic slats that line the edges of the windows and doors on your Lexus is called weather stripping. What it does is help keep seepage out of the vehicle's interior. It also helps the doors close more quietly.
Unfortunately, the system isn't permanent. It can wear out over time, owing to age and the elements. Luckily, there are signs that'll tell you that's happening. Look for unusual airflow through the doors and/or windows when they're closed, for water stains in the strip channels, and for brittle spots and cracking in the strips.
If it turns out that you need to install new ones, it's easy. All you have to do us take off the old screws, take the adhesive off the channels, dry them off, reapply new adhesive, and put on, align, and firmly press in some fresh strips. Afterward, simply replace the screws.
Of course, the steps to follow for your Lexus model might vary slightly, and it goes without saying that you should be sure to use new versions of the same strip lengths and parts as you did before. Your best bet is to install the genuine OEM article. Lexus manufactures it to fit the car or SUV you drive specifically. That's a promise that you may not always get from an off-brand.
