Door panel rubbing on weather strip

The inside door panel is rubbing on my rubber weatherstripping near the latch. The outside panel gaps are just about perfect. I am wondering if this is a door adjustment (sag) issue or interior panel adjustment (if possible). Thanks.

Interior panel fitment isn't adjustable.

The reason the outside panel gaps are "about perfect" is that when the door is closed (that time when you can check those outside gaps) the rubbing weatherstripping is holding the door (sag) up.

Open the door and check the outside gaps. Oops, you can't.

Starting to see where I am heading with this?



If you want to check the hinges for wear open the door and see if you can lift the door up from the latch end. If it has up/down wobble you need new hinges. Or you can adjust them every so often. Also, lubing them every now and then helps. Not with old wear, but helps prevent new wear.

Better fix it. I believe the rubber seal is about 10 billion dollars.

Looks like a great web site but the OEM seal has several molded corners in it. It is far from being just one profile. And why not use the OEM anyway. It's about $150 per side. Just bought a bunch from Mopar.

Where did you manage to find these? I need a drivers side weather strip. I have tried a number of Mopar websites and dealers, and I have been told none are available and they are discontinued.
