Re: Door Seals

I never replaced mine, but I did get wind noise...turns out it had moved over time. The door seal slides in the channel it is in. Check to see that it's slid all the way back (rear door. Mine would tend to creep up where the front door meets the front fender. If I remember correctly, it was one, continuous piece all the way from front to back.

Re: Door Seals

I just bought my 04 WJ and noticed that the seals on both sides was short on the back door. Later found that it was too long and went into the fender. I was thinking "why would some fool install the weather seals so forward". Now I think "maybe I'm not smart enough to own a Jeep."

Happens to the best of us brother...that's why forums like this are so great. We can bury our embarrassments here and look like heros in the garage.
