    Thanks for the quick replies

    I try to avoid the "stealer"ships, but with all this information, I am sure I can find what I need at a reasonable price!

    Thanks again - good to know if I ever have something I can't find or figure out, I have a forum for additional information!

    I need to do this repair on both front doors.

    How did you loosen the interior panels to access the black weatherstriping?

    Did you just pry on it with a trim removal tool?

    Front and back doors weatherstrip

    I need to replace all 4 doors weatherstrip and the part number for front are
    F1TZ-7820708-C, rear door are the same part number with letter D at the end instead of C, some people say they are exactly the same so can I buy all as F1TZ-7820708-C for all 4 doors? The reason is because the rear doors are discontinued parts.

    thanks in advance

    So does JC Whitney.com. I'm about to replace the driver's side weatherstripping on my '94 Explorer Sport. Figured I'd look on the site to get tips. Hope it is as easy as you all say.

    I know this is an OLD thread but if it helps anyone... I replaced my drivers door weather seal, that is attached to the body of door opening for $25 from Amazon. Took maybe 15 minutes. Length was about 18" longer than original, and easy to trim, so it is enough to do any of the 4 doors on the Sport-Trac. Only downside(temporary) is it is more stiff than original, after 18 year old strip that I removed. Door takes firm hard pressure to fully latch shut. I just installed it today, so I imagine that after being compressed in the closed door for awhile, it will flatten out like the old one was, and things will close easier. Part # at Amazon was Fairchild F3031. Hope someone finds this info useful, I had to "Chance it". lol

    Rock Auto has the door weatherstrip in kits for pairs of the doors, front or rear. I only priced and bought the front pair, I think they were under $30 total. They felt about like the originals to me.

    Yes but this is for Sport Trac, and they only listed up to 2001 that I could see. Was just trying to share info. If your info\part is the same part, than that is a great deal for a pair for both sides of the 2002 Sport Trac!

    You did well to share that information, the Sport Trac is not the same as the 4dr's. They might be very close, but it's best to have a longer weatherstrip than needed, as you know. As they age, the seals shrink, and have gaps of 1/2" or more. Try to find the rear hatch seal for the 91-01's, those nobody makes, the last I looked. Regards,

    Excellent info since most ST body parts and panels were discontinued long ago. Many say salvage yards, but ALL scrapped ST's are approaching 20 years old. Hope the Fairchild F3031 weatherstripping continues to be a long term solution. Thanks!
