Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you're getting incorrect seals then you either have mismatched parts on the vehicle, possibly it's not actually a 2006 vehicle, or the issue may be with the quality of the parts. If you're trying to order them from a parts store rather than seeing your dealer then that may explain it.

Can you post the VIN?
Do you have the brand and part numbers of the seals that did not work?
