interior door weatherstripping

Post by ragek23 » Thu Feb 19, 2015 6:01 pm

I'm starting to get a windchill on the highway from my doors. Anyone know the best way to solve bad door weatherstripping?

can you buy aftermarket? where to buy oem replacement? etc.

Are you sure it is the door gasket? Is the vapor barrier intact behind the inner panel?

You can get a replacement door seal (Dealer), but they are ~$100+

Yeah, I'd say that replacing the weatherstripping is a good idea, then. :)

Maybe check the door itself, unless there is obvious damage to the gasket. Possibly the upper frame has been bent out from someone trying to break in. It would suck to spend for a new gasket, to only have the same issue.

you could say it was bent at one time. Car was t-boned in a previous life. Is there any chance a bigger universal weatherseal would do the job if the OEM one doesn't do the trick?
