[DML] Re: LEAKING DOOR SEALS



Last time I checked there were 3 different door seals being sold by 
the vendors. The main difference was the height. You might need to 
get a slightly higher (taller) door seal or a minor adjustment of 
the anchor pins may help. Replacing the outer door seals may also 
help (if they are missing or torn) by allowing less water into the 
gully between the door seals. Some water is supposed to get into 
there but it should not get past the inner seals. If too much does 
then the inner seals can leak. As for "shaving" aka grinding, that 
is done to the forward, upper edge to try to "tip" the inner seal so 
it doesn't rub on the door as it closes. If it rubs too hard it 
eventually tears up the seal. There is also a procedure for fixing 
water leaks on the body. You may have a spot that is leaking, not 
the door seal.
