Question about 2003 Toyota 4Runner

Squeaky Read Door

I have freshened up the rear doors seal w/ silicon spray and saw no improvement. I am wondering if the plastic pieces that meet (on the outer edge of the door and on the body down near the taillights) need to be lubricated or adjusted? That does not seem like a good place for grease but the piece on the door does have a screw and looks adjustable or replaceable. Does the motorized latching mechanism sometimes need adjustment?

SOURCE: Rear Door Handle Broken

I had the same problem, and here is the solution:

It includes step-by-step instructions and photos. I printed it and headed to the garage. I while later (hours actually) it was fixed. I did end up going to the hardware store and buying the EXACT size screw they recommend. I went with a screw rather than a nut and bolt. Worked fine.

SOURCE: how do I remove the rear door panel from my 2000

It is fragile but you take a small screw driver and pry the top horizantal part and then the bottom horizantal part slightly away and wella it will come off. The handle actually stays on the door I think. The cover comes off. When you do it once you'll see how easy it is.

Every time I lock the door, either with the key fob, the keythe door lock, or when it locks manually, it makes a loud screaching noise.


For the 2001 PT Crusier with squeaky lock: Sounds like metal on metal - maybe some oxidation. Try lubing the lock by squirting some liquid graphite or silicone spray lubricant in it (available at most Walmarts, Lowes, or car parts stores) and working the key in and out, lock-unlock several times to get it lubricated. Then try lubricating the lock knob and working it up and down. If that doesn't solve it, get a you-tube video that shows you how to easily remove the door panel and have a closer look. (Door panel typically has two screws under the arm rest, and then it has plastic "snaps" around the edges. Careful getting it started so as not to break any. Use a putty knife to get you started at the bottm edge. Good Luck!

Water coming in at back door


Check back door seals, clean leaves and dirt from around door, silicone spray on the door rubbers helps them to seal and remain pliable for many years.

Mazda Bt50 cab leaks on drivers side


I recently purchased a 2008 BT50 dual cab then 2 days later we had 500mm of rain and of course it leaked :( I had about 80mm of water on the drivers side floor and 30mm on the passenger side floor. I stripped the interior out of the car and started hosing the outside and watching where it was coming in. I took all the windscreen surrounds off and the cowl panel off below the screen there was no water coming in from that area. I had taken the gutter seals off but left the door seals on so the water was running down around the outside of the seals (with the door shut) and out at the bottom. From inside near the drivers side kick panel I could see water coming through seams in the metal work and when I took the door seal rubber off the body on the car I could see water was getting in at the top of the door seal rubber going down the front inside edge of the rubber and getting in through the seam where the rubber push's onto the body of the car (first problem). I took all the door seal rubbers off and run a bead of non corrosive silicon inside the cavity and pushed them back on. It seemed to have fixed the problem I dried the carpet and put it back together..Two weeks later we got another 325mm of rain and it leaked again :( not near as bad this time. Looking at the bottom of the door where the door trim meets the door I could see water coming from behind the trim and then into the car. I took the door trims off and could see water gets in when the window is up (all cars do) and is supposed to run out the drain holes in the bottom of the door but the water was dripping and splashing up to the back side of the door trim against the sheet of plastic that is supposed to seal against the door with the black mastic (it doesn't) and running straight into the car. I cut some plastic and siliconed them onto each opening on the inside of the door frame and then put the factory piece of plastic on as well (properley this time) as a backup.
So far so good.

I have a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire and every time it rains or snow in the cold weather all the doors freeze shut what can i use to stop this


Get a can of silicone spray from your local parts store. Spray a rag liberally and wipe down all of the rubber gaskets that seal the doors to the car. The silicone spray will keep ice from freezing the seals to the door.

2002 suburban has leak in driver side rear floor. Cannot see where water would be coming from?


We had same--water on driver side rear floor (soaked!). Driver side front floor seemed dry until feeling UNDER rug, was slightly damp. We found the location of TWO leaks causing this.

Leak #1 was through the parking brake line/cable seal; Recaulked with silicone. Removed plastic trim on floor between floor and door to reveal metal channel filled with water.

Leak #2 was where the door meets the car, near the hinge. It was the accordian-looking tube housing the wiring for the door. The big, rubber, circular plug connecting it to the main part of the car had come loose and water ran down through that, into the SAME metal channel filled with water from leak #1; will seal with silicone.

Note: We found that the channel filled extensively near the front door, BUT the carpet edge from the floor near the rear seat was dipping into it, wicking it up to the rear floor. Also, upon acceleration, the water in the channel gushed toward the back, thus soaking the rear carpet.

These leaks were found by removing all plastic trim (covering edges of carpet by doors), then one of us pouring water into specific areas of the exterior of the vehicle, and the other one watching closely with a flashlight for any signs of dripping.

Doors freeze up wont shut close after opening interior light then stays on


Look at the end of the door where the latch is located. The latch may have flipped to the closed possition when the door was open.There is a U shaped piece that when the door hits the post on the door jam it flips up to hold the door shut.If you can get the passinger door open you can see what it looks like in the open position. If this is the problem just hold the door handle like you are opening the door and with a srew driver or even your finger you can push than U piece back down.To keep your door from freezing shut try putting sone silicone spray on a paper towl and wiping it on the rubber door seal.Spray a little on the door latch as well.

Drivers side window sticks sometimes...does the switch need replacement?


The window tracks may be worn and need to be replaced. You may get away with buying a dry silicon lubricant spray and with the tube nozzle, spray the silicon down on the side of the window tracks. That's where the glass window edge meets the door frame and down in the door. Keep me posted and this should help.

Back window leaks


JUST look and see, when raining? really !

THE TOP REAR , Window fits to a abar that fits to a long bar,
when the rear door closes , it seals against this bar, and there is a seal.

if no seal then go to GM or Suzuki and ask for seals.

2003 Jeep Liberty rear side window "squeals" when operated down.


I usually spray guide tracks with a silicone spray. It works pretty well. Up north where I am, when sprayed on door seals it keeps doors from freezing closed as well!
