Agh!!!  Good luck with that.  My vents, for what ever reason was one 2-piece and one one-piece with tabs.  Not sure why.  I now have several vent window seals that I cannot use.  I got so frustrated I paid the price and sent it off to Precision and had them rebuild them.  They did a great job and was worth the price to avoid the headache. https://www.prp.com/

I have yet to replace these, but anytime I have trouble fitting rubber parts I lubricate it with Dawn dish soap. Very slippery but washes away with water afterwards. Not sure if that will help you.

Heat the rubbers in hot water or sunlight and use sil-glyde. You may get arthritis too
