The stuff that will seal the doors is a 15-foot roll of windshield sealing material from most auto parts stores. 15' will do 2 doors. Problem was with my front doors, I don't know if anyone'* had rear doors leak or not.
Just noticed mine is leaking in the left rear door. Does the sealing material you refer to just get applied along the bottom of the inside of the door? Sorry for the dumb question, but I've no experience with this.

Thanks

you take the trim panel off and there will be a blueish plastic barrier wiht a line of black butyl all around it. When you look at the bottom you will most likely find that parts of the seal have come apart.

I've tried kneeding the stuff and putting it back on but that wont fix it for more than a week.

I just used windshield sealing bead to fix mine, its the same stuff. You'll have to get all the old stuff off, its alot like chewing gum. Once you get some of it off you can use it to pull the rest off.

Here are some pics I took and helpful tips in a PDF file, posted a while back here. Post any other questions you have after looking through it. Admin. would probably suggest you put a new thread up of your own. I was beyond sighing and closer to cursing when my carpet was soaked!

Please consider a title change. You may get much better results when people know what you are sighing about.

Just a few other quick tips. I had better luck removing the old butyl rubber when it was cold. I did both the front doors and the passenger rear door just a few weeks ago. It was right around 30*F outside and after leaving the plastic sit outside for a few minutes, the rubber seemed to come off easier.

I also found that it released from the plastic deflector or metal door easier when you pulled away from the adhered material at a slight angle away from the plastic.
