Rubber molding maintenance ?

Car/SUV Questions-

The window channels of my SUV seem to be drying out and in 10 years, I've done noting to protect/soften/lubricate them other than normal washing.

It seems like they are starting drying out and maybe it's time to resurrect the dead! Any suggestions on something to use? It might be too late... The rubber molding around all of the doors is still very soft and payable, it's just the window channels. The SUV just hit 100,000 miles and except for normal maintenance, is just like new. I wish that Infinity still made the same model. I'd buy another.

Tampa, Fl.

I've had good luck with 303 Protectant for all rubber and plastic parts.
