SATURN ION DOOR PROBLEM

2004 Saturn Ion • 76,000 miles

I've seen other posts, seems to be a problem with others. My Saturn Ion Coupe passenger and driver side doors have thin, hard plastic window seals that have bubbled and do not stop water. These run on top of a chrome 'channel' from the outside edge of the door to under the mirror on both sides. In addition, the inside seals have also become wavy and don't look like they could stop water either, so I want to just replace both the inside and outside seals on both sides of the car. I have looked on the net for parts, numbers, etc., and am not sure of what to order. Also, have read replacement is fairly easy, but don't know if it is or isn't. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Similar issue found on your website (only my car is the coupe with the suicide doors).

If you could provide both part numbers and instructions on how to replace I will be forever in your debt.

Here is the outter strips they dont give out part numbers anymore for factory parts these days.So here is the link to buy the part. i also posted the link for the inner part bellow that you can click the diagram to make sure there the correct parts your talking about,The outter stripe is easy remove the screw towards the door latch and the strip will then pop off.
