    Door seals...

    Hi,

    I have a problem on a 3door model - my drivers door rubber seals are really noisy... they are cracking, screetching, generating all kind of sounds... I tried to lubricate them with specialized oil but things got even worse... before I was hearing the noise only when going across bumps on the road, but now I can hear it even when I'm starting from 0mph in 1st gear... and offcourse the bumpier the ride, more of the noise...

    It's really driving me crazy... do you have any similar issues on 3door model? I thought of maybe ordering completely new seal...

    If they're cracking then time for new, depends how bad the cracking is.
