No. The seal should be replaced. The seal is usually placed around the window glass first. A sealant is added to the window channel and the glass plus seal are installed into the opening.

This is a pretty delicate operation. I usually send front and rear glass out to guys that are professionally trained because of how easy it is to break these larger pieces of glass.
