Dodge Ram 1500 The Front Door Weatherstrip May Tear

(15 reports)

The drip rail door seal may become torn form contact with the lower A-piller. A revised secondary door seal is available to correct this concern. This is not a recall but a technical service bulletin (TSB) which means the failed part will be replaced at the customers expense once the warranty has expired.

There is a somewhat sharp corner of the front door, ahead of the exterior side view mirror. It's basically the base of the A-pillar. It tears the door seal. There is a recall to replace the entire front door seal with a redesigned seal that allows for this interference. -
