Re: Door jam

Those are the holes to drain the water from the inside of the door. I think they are there so trash doesn't get in and plug the holes. All my cars have had them they will eventually fall off.

Re: Door jam

That's what I thought, I just wasn't sure if they needed to be peeled off. Thanks, I'll leave them alone.

I'd suggest pulling them now that the vehicle is in service so the weep holes can drain any water easily and the door can dry out.

Agreed moosehead. They seem to just trap moisture behind them, which does more harm than good.
