Report: Front Door Seals Tear Due to Interference From Door Sheetmetal
Dodge Ram 1500 Problem
Average Mileage: 53,950 mi (2,700 mi - 130,000 mi)
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.

Wind and rain blow in at front door seals and also rips when door is opened.
Dealer replaced complete seals on both sides with redesigned seals under warranty.

Had wind and water leak in. Took to dealer numerous times >10x. Always told it was ok. Had seal replaced 1x at my costs even though under warranty. Still not fixed
