Default Adjusting door seals.

I think I have a bad mold problem on my 93, after a couple of days spraying the car of Febreeze in order to make being in the car bearable, this "wet dog" smell comes back.

Now its too cold for me to do a full interior rip-out, and on top of that im at the university so I dont think the police patrol will take too kindly to me doing car repairs in their lot. The pressing issue I have are shrunken door seals. I remember reading in a thread from a long while ago that you can adjust them so that you only have a gap at the bottom of the door. But I dont know how to remove the bottom trim piece. And can you just pull the rubber at the top of the door and re-adjust without removing at the top there? How did you fix your door seals? Thanks.

Do it inside or wait for it to warm up - those things snap easy.

Consider that there are many more than 31 people on this club that can read this and not know the answer. Somedays it takes more than 3 hours to get a response.

It'* a simple pull up situation, instead of being harsh to those that may help.... you may want to rethink your strategy.

Boreas, you can chill your attitude. We're not here to serve you. You can wait patiently for a response like everyone else does.

If your question isn't answered satisfactorily enough already, you can start a new topic and have a little more patience next time.
