    Hi all,

    Wondering if anyone has had an issue with door seals/weather stripping not being properly seated.

    Took delivery today, and noticed 2 of the doors didn’t close as easily as the others. Looking around, it seems that the weather stripping at the top of 3 of the doors (including the part that the window seats into when closed) isn’t seated properly, bowing inward and outward.

    I’d assume they just need to be re-seated or replaced. Has anyone had to have this done?

    Maybe related, maybe not: there is a small lip on the driver’s side rocker, maybe half a centimeter deep, when the doors are closed. However, the passenger side doors close flush with the rocker.

    schedule a service appointment to check the stripping and the door alignment with the strike plates.

    Took delivery December 26, 2019. Noticed today my door seals are almost all falling out. Have an appointment schedule already to fix some other stuff and install home link - hopefully they'll fix this at the same time. PXL_20200913_184924185.jpg PXL_20200913_184915902.jpg
