Window sweep or felt. You can get them in rolls and cut to fit, or you can try and find them specific to your vehicle. http://www.rubbertherightway.com/window-channels-sweepers-fuzzies-beltline-54114-prd1.htm

If you live in a climate where it rains a lot you will never stop rain from getting in the door, even new cars will get some water inside, so you must make sure that the door drains are clear of any debris, you can see them as little raised areas along the bottom of the door. Every summer I wash all of mine out with a hose nozzle and let the heat dry it out, I've had bugs, pine needles, and just plain dirt wash out over the years with my vehicles.

Is it leaking inside the car? Make sure the vapor barrier is sealed all the way round, especial at the bottom when you pull the door panel off.

great answers... that plastic need to be sealed good... some repair shops take short cut and don't put back.. or a car that had prior damage.... it is important...along with good felt trim on the door.. Nancy O.
