I had the dealer replace the seals as well, it was done under warranty on my 540iA

Here are the part numbers I ordered in advance of my service. Made a big difference!

Cheers

: At the suggestion of another posting here, I asked my dealer to replace the seals on my '97 528i with a new set. The finish is a little rougher than the previous THREE sets, and they are TREMENDOUSLY quieter. The part numbers are the same as they've been, but the change involves a felt-like finish on the mating surface. Talk to your dealer about it -- you'll be much happier. Without the doors rattling, I can clearly hear the squeak coming out of the back seat and the rattle from the shade on the moonroof! :-)
: : My '99 528iA has some rattles every now and then from the drivers side passnger door. It is only on occasion, but it is annoying. When I go in for my service I'll have the dealer check it out.
