    I have a 2007 2500 HD and yesterday I noticed that at the bottom of the doors where the weather stripping is up against the plastic for the cab/carpet that in between I have rust starting to develope

    Is anyone else seeing this?

    And what is a good fix to stop this

    wow thats quick.

    a nice bath in fluid film will eat up any rust and also prevent more from appearing

    when you wash your truck it doesnt hurt to open the door up and wash that part and spray it down. all the road salt and grime gets up in there and no one ever wash's it out or cleans it because they dont think of it and its not readily visible unless you think to look there.

    Second owner or not, take it to the dealer since it's still under warranty! Don't apply anything yet, or the dealer might try to say that whatever you put on had something to do with the rust.
