Changing cowl seal

Hi jeepers,, I will be changing my cowl seal soon and read a bunch of advise for how to do it,, the most common problem is the seal being so thick , it is hard to get windshield closed and requires some frame adjustments.. I also wanted to add that getting the seal warm first will help the rubber seal squish a little easier,, several ways to do this, but the best is to leave in sun for an hour before installing, other ways,, a blow dryer,, starting your engine and setting on your air filter ( be sure it doesnt fall into fan!!).
I will let you all know if this helps,,
Just another bit of advice for everyone,, Ever had a rubber hose that was just a little too small to expand over fitting?? Take a hammer and pound on end of hose gently untll it gets warm and it should slide right on..
