door seal replacement help

421 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Robin750
Has anyone replaced the outer seal on the front door of our cars? I replaced the rear with no issues, but the front wasn't as obvious so I wanted to reach out for any advice before diving in. Looking to do the one that seals with the exterior of the body.

Thanks,

Hopefully this helps, looks like the exterior trim needs to come off first.

Thanks for the reply. I went ahead and stopped wimping out and tackled it this afternoon. Turns out there was some glue or something used and adding a little extra hold on the seal, but if I pulled up on it (after removing the pin) it came out easily and then installed back in quickly. Was done with both front doors within 30 mins.

Functionally what was shown in the picture wasn't really hurting anything, but it's close to eye level and was bugging me on an otherwise clean car so I wanted to knock it out.

Glad the replacement went smoothly. Something like that would bother me too. :)
