AJ ;
Thanks for moving my post to the proper forum .
I tryed cleaning the door and seal but it did no good . The only thing left to do is replace seal . Is this difficult to do ? If I have it done how much would it cost ?

its not that hard to do if you have small hands and strong arms, ive done many and i dont own or use the special tool, just needle nose pliars
you need to be carefull doin it this way cause if you slip you can poke a hole in the new door seal :oops:

takes me 1/2 hour now that i have practice, plan on an hour your first go at it
