Re: Any early WJ's have bad door seals?

I used the TSB procedure on WJjeeps.com using some foam tape. Worked great.

Re: Any early WJ's have bad door seals?

I got the same problem on my 99 WJ, actually only the rear doors.

Re: Any early WJ's have bad door seals?

My '04 WJ is doing the same.. I really got my driver side bad this past winter. She was frozen shut and I man-handled her pulling the gasket right off the door jam. I figured a heat gun and decent adhesive should fix it. I'm still unsure what type of adhesive to use though. Considered a little epoxy but I think something that stays tacky would be better for such an application.

Re: Any early WJ's have bad door seals?

I have not seen this mentioned, but using a dry silicone spray on the rubber door seals and weatherstripping will help with keeping it from drying out.

Re: Any early WJ's have bad door seals?

I have some gorilla glue epoxy.. may give that a spin. Needed it to reconstruct my freakin air intake. Last person to work on it tightened it down way too tight on the throttle body and cracked the collar in a few places. Think she's holding together now tho.

Re: Any early WJ's have bad door seals?

Now you mention it I think I need to swap mine out...

I've noticed a fair bit of wind noise driving home from work recently and also there seems to be loads of condensation on the inside which freezes in patches when its really cold at night - which is a PITA in the morning. Must be shrinking a lot with the cold 'cos I never noticed it last Summer/Fall.

Re: Any early WJ's have bad door seals?

I'd say you're right man... Maybe your Jeep just wants to move to CO? .. Higher elevation, less moisture..

Re: Any early WJ's have bad door seals?

Both my rear doors have this problem now, funny how the rear doors seem especially problematic. Seems like an easy fix though, thanks all for the tips-

Re: Any early WJ's have bad door seals?

ive been thinking about going to a local junkyard, grabbing an old door seal and cutting it up into 1" or so strips. so people can re adhere their rear gaskets, and then cut this little strip to stick in the gap that will be present at the bottom of the door. might be a good idea.

Re: Any early WJ's have bad door seals?

Last weekend I was detailing my Jeep and decided to try to fix my door seal issue. I bought the 3M Weatherstrip Adhesive but in the end did not use it. By the time I was ready to tackle the problem I didn't feel like removing the trim needed to properly remove the seal. Instead I slowly worked the seal, starting from the seam at the bottom, toward either the front or back (depending on how that particular seal fix best). In the end I had the customary 0.5" gap on the bottom and a good, tight fit all around the seal. I did not have to use the adhesive and so far it is working great. If I start to have problems again I'll just glue it then!
