Hey... I wonder if some of you kind folk
can answer a question, my weather-strip on the drivers side is just ripping... Do I have to go to a dealer to get a new one? :(

Cheers

Mine is kind of doing that along the bottom edge of the door. I figure if nothing is coming in when it's raining, it don't need to be replaced.

The upper corners of the rear doors, however, have either shrunk or somethin, because they don't run along the full edge of the door frame anymore. (these are the frame seals, not the door seals)

The frame seals shrinking was a common problem in all 4 doors. I don't think you'll have any problem with the outside getting into the car, but it looks like ****. Someone here did post an idea on how to fix them but I can't find it.

Seems like other people are having similair problems... There has been official notices from Chrysler about these problems, but they are not paying for you to fix them, some ideas they mention are clips (Even got the part numbers) and liquid foam to be injected inside the weather strip... You know, the more I read the TSBs etc for our LH cars the more I think they rushed on a few elements of its desgin... Anyway, thanks Gentleman for the info its much appreciatted.. Ill take my Corde to the Dealer to see how much of a financial damage it will cause me :)
