Hi everyone,

I did a quick search and didn't see any posts regarding door / roof leaks. Have any of you had an occasional issue with a leak near the roof? My headliner is getting damp along the top of the door seal and around the oh s#$% handle. I haven't started pulling it apart to look yet, thought someone may know of a common issue.

My first guess would be the weather striping but I'm just not sure. It seems to only leak near the top of the door?

I appreciate any advice!

Does the door seal all the way against the weatherstripping? A good way to tell is take a piece of paper and close the door on it. Can you pull the paper out with little to no effort? If so you're not getting a good contact. There's a couple of ways you can fix this:

1. Adjust the door hinges / latch plate to cause the door to seal tighter
2. Roll your window down and place a 2x4 on the bottom of the door and with your hands push in on the top of door to "tweak" it

I like option 1 over option 2 but those are the ways I've always done it over the years.
