914 Door lock bushing

I decided to look at these as "bushings" rather than seals. The reason these were not rubber was the rubber would "grab" at the two surfaces and would deteriorate in much less time as the tonsorial forces would exceed the flexibility of the rubber over a very short time. The rubber would also require additional torque to get the full range of motion and the stress on the key would fatigue the metal at a much higher rate than normal usage.

Installation is similar to the OEM part with the exception that you apply a marine grease to the lock mechanism install the bushing, and re coat the outside of the bushing to create a water resistant seal.
