Default Door Leaking Water From Top

ok, I know about the door panel problem leaking water and all, but my driver side door is leaking water from the top of the door. I noticed it today during the rain when leaving work for lunch, drips in slowly. Seems like the black weather strip around the door is not doing its job, I think it doesn't stick out as far as it should now, and it seems to be squished really tight together, and doesn't pop back into its regular shape. Can I get this somewhere and replace it? Thanks, Brad

Can you look to see what may have caused a change in shape? Is the weatherstrip out of position so it'* being scrunched and compressed? Does it return to its original shape if you leave the pressure off--leave the door open a few hours in warmer temps to see if the rubber comes back?

Check to see if it didn't shrink a little and is sitting too low. GMPD should have the weatherstrip if you need new.
