2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: DIY Door Seal Fix

by Dan Frio, Automotive Editor on September 14, 2015

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

Many, many miles ago, our 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel exhibited a bit of a fit-and-finish issue. My daughter pointed it out to me as she was climbing into the rear cab.

"This door thingy is loose," she said, pointing to the Ram's rear driver-side door seal. And so it was.

"Can you fix it?" I asked.

She gamely went for it, lining up the channel in the rubber gasket with the door's edge, pressing the seal into place, seating it and kneading out the slack. To my knowledge, the seal hasn't come loose since and we haven't needed to address it with the dealer.

Nothing to see here. Just a dad with a generally useless English degree, trying his best to expand #girlsinSTEM.
