    I have a nbs 2010 silverado 2500hd ext. cab and am very dissapointed with the weather seal on the door jambs. On both bottom front corners water and road dirt blows right into the jamb between the front fender and door skin. So much so that the felt liner in the front fender is soaking wet. Anyone???

    That's the way it's supposed to be. Wash it out!

    Not a normal or acceptable condition. A very poor design if such. Had nothing like this on my 98 or 2002. Water, salt and dirt is riding in, above the lower weather strip.

    If you guys dont like it, you can get door weather stripping material at any automotive center. As stated above, how about someone posting a pic so we can see exactly where and maybe offer some better suggestions.

    Got any picks the only thing I can think of is that the wheel housing skirt is loose and allowing that stuff to blow in. Other wise its normal to have some dirt and sand run into there from door fender gap
