    Looks fantastic, I wonder if its only cosmetic? What if you just removed the old stripping and did not put in a replacement, would that leave the car exposed to water?

    Regards!

    It really is a quick and easy fix. Grab the old, pull them up, and out. Remember to line up the new clips with the same spacing that the old ones have so that they pop right back into place when you drop them in.

    What will really bring it all together is if you replace your driver side door check...like driving off the showroom floor.

    What is a door check? Is it pre- 2001-2004 part?

    The arm that keeps a door from opening all the way to 90 degrees open.

    It keeps the door open. So the f-ing thing doesn't keep trying to close on you on hills or when you are getting out with your hands full.

    This one is specifically for 01-04 front doors. I imagine it is the same for all 1st gen model years, and likely even possibly the preceding Pickup.
