  • Door Seal Vibrations

    I now have 11000km on my DID LWB and in the last 2000 km I have noticed some annoying vibrations coming from the door seals. They make themselves apparent over even the slightest bumps. I've taken it back to the dealer and they claim to have adjusted it but its still there!

    Anyone else experience this?

    I've just done 17000k's in my SWB and have noticed over the last couple of thousand k's that the rear door has been making a lot of noise when going over rougher roads - especially at low speeds when the car is twisting. Is this a similar problem to yours or does it happen at high speeds as well? My passenger doors haven't been making any noise tho...

      Lube it up

      I have had several Pajs now onto my third, but I regularly run silicon oil over all the door seals. Buy CRC Silicon oil and use a small piece of sponge impregnated with the silicon to apply it to the rubbers. Each time I do this the car is like new.

      If it really is a vibration then I am not sure what would cause this, if the vibration is accentuating the "stickiness" of the rubber then the lube will help.

          Since my DID LWB logged 5K kms (I'm now nearing 9K kms), my rear door have been making squeaking noise when the body is subjected to a slight twist. Anyone know if this can be fixed?

            Thoughts

            Schniff, If the lube doesn't help then it might be a door alignment problem, If it is demonstrable, take it to the dealer and show him. Check your clearances from the outside, ie see if the door looks aligned, the gaps look right, outside skin is flush at the joins etc.
            I have taken my Paj's ove the roughest of roads and corrugations and always pretty solid.

            Another thought might be that the door latch might not be tight, try simulating the noise by pushing on the door on the outside to see if you can nail where the noise if coming from, Allthis is to try and point the service staff at the right problem.

            Make sure that you lubbed all metal to door rubber contact points also, I can't recall whether the doors have a rubber buffer to maintain distance, also in the door lock it self on the latch loop.

            I am a real nut for vibrations and squeaks so I know where you are coming from.
