2012 Audi A8 Long Term Road Test

2012 Audi A8L: Rubber

September 26, 2012

It's not easy being the most luxurious car in the Edmunds fleet, and maybe the strain is beginning to get to the A8. After its most recent trip to the car wash, I noticed a bit of loose, dangling rubber on our luxo-barge's driver-side door. A cry for help? Perhaps. In any case, it's definitely not a good look.

Was it a simple problem to fix? Click after the jump for the riveting details.

As it turns out, though the rubber looked like it had become unglued somehow, all it took was a gentle nudge to take it from this...

...to this.

Looks like it should stay put, too. Now we can continue to practice safe door opening and closing. Thank goodness for rubber.
