    Front door body seal has split - how difficult is remove & replacement?

    I discovered that the driver front door seal on the body has split at the bottom. How difficult is this deal to replace? I’ve tried calling two Tesla SC’s parts departments and left messages. No response. I’m not very happy that I have to actually visit one to get part info.

    Replacement tires for 2021 SR+
