    Alright, here's the deal. The guy I bought the car off had kids, and of course, they pulled on the strap of leather on the back doors, and i figured ' no problem, im glue it back'. I did.

    The problem is that i didn't notice that a line of glue slid down the door and in between the rubber and the leather, and now they're absolutely SEALED together... I tried forcing the door open but it's ripping the rubber in half, half of it staying on the actual door...

    Should I just cut the thing or is there something else i can do? Is the black rubbery part important?

    very hot soapy water and a flat edged lever and gently pry it apart as you get it soft with the hot water, if that dont work rip the fuc*** and replace the seal.

    be careful with the door card and the damage wont be noticeable when the door is shut
    try asking our forum vendor,quarry, if they stock new door seals
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
