Hi all, Getting some air leaks through my front door seals on my 96 EL. There doesn't seem to be any adjustment on the hinges etc like the good ol' days. Any tips on how to overcome this problem. Buying from a wrecker may not fix it. Thanks

I have the same issue, the door has dropped. have a look at the seals under the door itself, Mine have chewed themselves out, Is the door harder to close as well?

i know ppl will probably cringe at this suggestion but it actually works. pull the top corner of ur door in as u support the rest of the door but dont put 2 much weight down as it may put a bit much stress on the hinges. i used to do it all the time on my EF fairmont and it helps alot.
