2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Sticky Doorsill No More

November 20, 2013

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

A couple of weeks ago I noted that our 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe's passenger side door was sticky. I looked at the sill in the dimly lit parking garage, and didn't notice anything amiss.

Well, a bright-light inspection later confirmed that the stickiness had nothing to do with the door itself, but "someone" had dribbled an unknown substance onto the doorsill, which somehow ran up the side of the door to make a serious "seal" between the sill and the rubber trim.

After a good, hard scrubbing, the mess, and noise, went away.
