No problems whatsoever. The tape is barely visible, and the seal between the door and body remains perfect, with no wind noise, water ingress or heating/draft issues.

I'd definitely recommend it.

I solved the problem.

I applied a cheap "silicone lubricant spray" with a piece of cloth and then cleaned with another dry cloth. After my application it snowed in here and my car rested for 30 hrs . today, most of the creaky sounds are gone away now. I'll clean rubbers every day with only dry cloth until sounds completely go away. there was "highly flammable" written on the spray, I hope there won't be any chemical reaction with the rubbers. please write here if you have any ideas.

Note: I applied this solution to my vw polo 6c. I don't know if this solution works with another makes. Producers may use different types of rubbers in their products.

I suggest everyone do not touch your rubbers for no reason

I was going to suggest a Silicone spray. I recently cleaned my car windows and also the rubber seals which I cleaned with window cleaner. I then had a very irritating squeak when opening and closing the window. I searched around and read that Silicone spray would help with squeaky windows. I was a bit reluctant to spray any lubricant on window rubbers thinking that it would smear but the Silicone spray has helped with my problem, the squeak is gone and there is no smearing on the glass.
I also read that some people apply Silicone lubricant to door rubbers to prevent them from freezing and sticking in winter.
