    My 2015 has splits on both sides - does anyone have feedback on replacements from Ford?

    Our 2017 Sport with 25k miles has it happening on both doors. With a 100k mi. extended warranty I'll try my case. I checked two of my friends Explorers and both had it to some degree.

    Weatherstrip is NOT covered under the Ford ESP.

    I wonder if weatherstrip for my 2015 Ford Explorer had worn out rapidly after 42,000...any comments?

    There are a lot of factors involved into the longevity of automobile weatherstripping. For example, our 97' Sport has perfect weatherstripping all the way around still, however it has been garage kept for the 18 yrs we have had it, and the vehicle was not used heavily either. Sunlight (UV RAYS) are the biggest detriment to most rubber components. Heavy usage also pays a toll, scraping, rubbing, like the hatch weather stip encounters at the bottom of the floor (exit) out back is probably the most likely to get torn from dragging cargo out the back during loading and unloading.

    Hi,
    I understand UV rays can damage rubbers but compared to other car brands, mine has damaged too fast I think. My car is always parked inside a garage and almost never outside.
    Does anybody know where I can get a replacement?

    Where is it damaged? Is the rubber cracked or torn? I assume this is for a 2015 model year, if that is the case, a dealership should be able to get it.

    It’s torn and the dealer says they don’t have it, I live in Panama.
    I’ll be in the Orlando, Florida área and planning to look for a dealer over there...
    Hope I can get it

    Going to DISNEY WORLD?
    I can say, that when I was sales manager, I NEVER told a customer "I am not able to get it" (part) for a machine we sell or service.

    My 2017's driver side is torn, passenger side is looks great.

    Not sure if I will bother replacing, as i am sure it will happen again.

    2015 Explorer Sport w/ 50,060 on clock. Same weather strip issue on front of rear door, driver side. A rip about 8" long behind front door handle. Lowest cost replacement is from local Ford dealer at $37.10 plus tax. Replacement appears easy.
