Default Re-doing the weatherstripping on the doors

My backseat floor mostly and a small portion of my front seat get water in it im assuming from the rear door weatherstripping moldings.. has anyone got all the weatherstripping re-done before? im just trying to find a price estimate because its one of those things on my list to get done.. or do myself.. im somewhat "car inclined" so i can figure it out if its an easy job but the only way i can think of is molding glue. i need suggestions n tips or whatever u have to give! thanks!

Yes..many have priced it out and it'* expensive. The most cost effective fix seems to be getting a large chunk from a junkyard and adding as you need to get yours to fully seal.
