Default door seals

Can anyone suggest the best place to buy door seals . I've been dealing with these seals on my 93 for about a year now and would just like to replace them . Haven't checked with the dealer yet and have looked around on JC Whitney (whose seals seem generic) . I'm also going to have to replace the carpet because of the seals so any advice here is also appreciated ! Thanks in advance

I've got some spare pieces of 92-95 tan seals awaiting members in need...just holler if you need a chunk to add to your doors.

What is it with Pontiac that they have this problem? I've never encountered this on any other car that I"ve owned except the ones that were very old such as the 69 convertible Camaro I used to own . Of course it leaked ! I've seen the owners of newer than mine(93) on here speaking of this issue as well . I can honestly say that I don't think I'd buy another Bonneville again because of this and I like Bonnies! I've been looking around on Ebay and other places for a newer Bonneville but have now started looking at Regals and Impalas. My Chevy truck (94) doesn't leak at all and I know people with 13 year old Chevy autos that don't leak . I'm kind of disgusted with Pontiac right now but I will say that the rest of the car is holding up well .

All cars have their problems specific to that model / year. don't give up on Bonnes.
They are for the most part durable and have a good reliability.

How do you do that? Aren't they glued to the door frame?

No they are not glued to the door frame... Therte is some sealer used, but it was used as just that sealer and can be easily removed from the body...

The Weatherstrip on the 92-99 Bonnies tends to shrink a couple of inches over many years... There are a few areas that can leak on these cars...

But it was said to me once when I was fighiting the He** out of leaks on my 95, what can you expect after 11 years... I finally did repair the leaks, turned out to be a very small issue that gave me big headaches... My car has been bone dry for about 6 months now, even through florida downpours...

Now the 91 LE has spring a leak, I believe it to be at the windshields top corner on the drivers side... The car is about 16 years old and has been incredibly trouble free... Damn thing is still on the original fuel pump...

I would have another one..

Have you pinpointed the leak? we have several members that can tell you where the leak is most likely coming from..
