Hey Fellas, back again with a question about door seals and weatherstripping.
Firstly, a few months ago I was involved in a slight incident with my driver's side door and a garage door, which pushed the window frame forward and made the door unclosable. I was pissed, but was able to correct the issue, and now it looks as if it's never happened. (the door is less than a mm too low; the only way you can tell is if you follow the decals and notice that they are ever so slightly off).. This incident resulted in some damage to the door seal. which means that when I am in a car wash, water drips down the side of the door.
Secondly, there is some excessive wind noise at around 50 MPH and above, which I think is due to the door seal and the window seal. After closely inspecting it, it seems like the seal for the window was replaced at some point, or it was bound up and permanently messed up. I suspect this because when I go through a car wash, there is a slight amount of water the penetrates the bottom right (towards the front of the vehicle) side of the window.
My questions are:
- Is there a writeup on replacing the window and door seals?
- Where can I get seals that will actually work and seal properly?
Here are some pictures, because pictures are fun:
