    Default Sticking passenger door

    Here's a strange one
    My drivers side passenger door seems to 'stick' Not the hinges or the door catch but there seems to be a very good seal between the door and the rubber seal. This is noticable after it has rained as the door takes a couple of tugs to get open. Anyone else had this happen and any suggestions as to how I might get around it please?

    Maybe a silicon type of spray on the door rubber might help?.

    Hi Bucko, yup my passenger door sticks too especially the back ones if the've not been opened for a short time. as an example they stick so well it's like the've frozen shut with ice. I thought it was just mine its always nice to know yours is not the only one. They really do take a good tug to open sometimes.
    Cheers Woody

    Same here, I was gonna try feed the seals a bit with AG Vinyl and Rubber Care, see if that helps a bit.

    It's good to know that I am not the only one.
    I wonder why it does it? Maybe the doorseal gets squashed a bit too much and so forms a vacuum and the little airholes then 'stick' to the door?
    At least I know it's not gonna leak!!
