The convertible top has black rubber like weatherstrips or weatherseals. They are attached to the folding mechanism above the side windows and the windshield.

There are many seals on a car. No idea which ones you're referring to.

I have a 1997 Pontiac Sunfire 2.2L. If the catalystic converter is beginning to go, what noise if any, will I hear.

The catalytic converter will sound like it's full of rocks if the core has broken apart.Thump it with a rubber mallet(or your hand IF IT's COLD),should be pretty obvious.

The driver side window on my 1997 pontiac sunfire SE convertible

More than likely it is the window regulator which is usually replaced as a unit with the motor. Not difficult, pull off door panel and plastic liner and see the nuts to remove....about 4. tape glass up to top and pull out regulator...unclip wires. cost $50 to $100. Don't recommmend junkyard because these will be bad. Make sure that you seal plastic liner when reinstalling.
