Re: door seal mod

yep thats why it shuts hard. You need to use a rubber tube. Most I've read about use a surgical rubber tubing for this mod. The prices of that stuff is high so I never did the mod.

Re: door seal mod

I used 1/4" ID, 3/8" od surgical latex tubing which I bought 50' of for $32.95 off of ebay
My doors were hard to shut for a little bit as well afterwards, but they settled in.

Re: door seal mod

What is the point of this mod anyway? I know people do it but not sure for what.

Re: door seal mod

Over time the door will "relax" or the seals will become limp causing the door to rattle. If you put the tubing in the seals it makes them thicker and reform to the original shape which can help get rid of rattles
