To much noise even after new door seals!

I understand the air noise between the hardtop and door frame can be reduced by placing some RTV near the intersection of the two. Does anyone have anymore information about solving this problem. I have just replaced the door seals.

The next problem I have to tackle is replacing the door glass edge weather stripping. The question is, "do I have to remove the door glass to replace the gaskets that surround it." I certainly looks that way. Is this a difficult operation.

Merry Christmas to all!

Nope, but I'm interested in the response too. My door seals are in pretty good shape, but I'll be replacing the felt/rubber pieces that guide the windows down soon.

Re: To much noise even after new door seals!

1. Make sure your hard door hinges are not bent.
2. Make sure the doors are aligned with the body.
3. Make sure the tub's straight or #2 above ain't gonna work.
4. Make sure you've go the door post aligned correctly.
5. Make sure the upper window frame ain't bent outward.
6. I'd take out the window before replacing the seals.
7. Is it hard?
8. No, just time consuming.
9. Start taking off the handles, door trim, etc. and start working your way to the inside door mechanics.

Would it do me any good to put some RTV in the top coners of the door openings where the windshield meets the hardtop?
Thanks, Fran

It wouldn't hurt to try and if it doesn't reduce the noise you can just peel the RTV off.

Re: To much noise even after new door seals!

In the late fall when my hardtop goes back on, I put a dab of RTV between the hardtop and windshield for this reason. I also put a dab in the corners of the liftgate opening next to the tail gate to keep water that runs down between the top and the liftgate from going inside the jeep.
