    Not really sure what to call it, but the rubber window seal/trim I can hear air leaking through. It's annoying. Does anyone know where one might buy a new one at or possible a generic fix for it.
    My boss mentioned he used to work in a body shop and they would straighten out car doors some times by jacking up the door a bit.
    Not sure if this will work or not.
    Anyway, nice forum, lots of useful information.

    you need to inspect where the window meets the seal if it is siting tight, and for any damage( rips,tears,cracks).

    if the window is not seating agenst the seal you need to take the door panel off and adjust the window itself.

    there are three adjusting bolts with an torx head and a nut on them. the two neer the back of the door adjust the bootem angle of the window. the one in the middle adjusts the top of the window. loosen the nuts first to adjust the bolts.
