Weather Stripping: What is it and What Does it Do?
Put simply, it's a system of slats, made of rubber and soft plastic, on the edges of and lining your Mitsubishi vehicle's windows and doors; screws and adhesive hold each piece in place. It helps keep seepage out of your interior. It also helps your doors close more quietly.
Unfortunately, no weather strip is permanent. They can all wear out over a long time, often owing to the effects of exposure to the elements. Luckily, there are signs to tell you that's happening.
Symptoms it's Going Bad
- Airflow through your vehicle's doors and/or windows (when they're otherwise closed tightly)
- Water stains in the strip channels
- Brittle spots, cracks, and other strip wear
If you need to install new ones, it's as easy as taking off the old screws, removing the adhesive in the channels, drying the channels off, reapplying new adhesive, and putting on, aligning, and pressing in some fresh strips. Afterward, you simply replace the screws.
Of course, the steps you may have to follow for your Mitsubishi model may vary slightly. Plus, you should be sure to use the same strip lengths and parts as before. Your best bet to make sure it all happens the way it should? Install the genuine article.
Why Buy Genuine OEM?
The weather stripping that Mitsubishi makes for its cars and SUVs is guaranteed compatible with them. Plus, it'll help maintain their original looks. That's a promise you may not get on the aftermarket.
