Door card polythene protection sheet

Postby CliveRothwell » Mon May 03, 2010 6:39 pm

The car is fitted with polythene moisture protection sheets on all four doors as is common on all cars today. THey are fitted in the INSIDE of the door shell, glued along the top edge only and simply flapping around on the inside of the shell allowing any water to drip into the bottom of the door. The question is: should it be actually glued to the outer surface of the shell immediately next to the door card? (or is it an home fitted job?)

I've never seen one glued to the outer shell, Clive.

All the ones in the doors so far encountered are just as you describe, although the window motor mechanism and other bits and pieces tend to hold them tight against the inside. Lining up the holes in the sheet for the mounting bolts can be quite a game!
