Door seals out of track

the rubber seal that surrounds the doors on my 2012 JKU keep pulling out of their track at the bottoms of the doors. I have to constantly push them back into the track at least once a week so that I can avoid closing the doors on them.

I remember reading a threat about this, but I cant find it in the search.

has anyone had this problem, and has anyone been able to fix it?

Mines doing it too

I just bought a 2013 Rubicon. My passenger door seal is doing the same thing. This jeep was in the showroom and should not be doing this. I will search and see if I can find that thread. I'm thinking that some rubber cement may be in order...RTV, etc....something that won't melt the rubber. I will call the dealership and see what they do. I will let you know what I find out.

The seals sometimes stick to the door jamb. Lightly coat them with silicone spray and make sure to properly re-set them in the track if you have to. Don't glue them in. If there's a problem after that have the dealer replace the seal under warranty.

Spray the door jam? The rubber seal? or the inside track that the rubber goes into?

just wanted to get a clarification in writing.

Your going to spray the actual rubber seal and not the door jamb. A good trim or rubber protectant product will work also.

This. Thanks detail. Yes, it's officially in writing. Silicone causes a no stick situation and lasts a long time between treatments. I spray the silicone on a rag and then wipe the outside of the seal as to not have overspray.

Thanks....

I had mine in for other reasons, and mentioned it. The dealer did what I did and just stuck it back in. Came out again, of course. Only a problem w/ the drivers side door. I think it's been ok for a while, but I haven't really checked.
