Tri-five truck weatherstripping Q

about 2 years ago i put new weatherstripping on my truck's doors. they were closing perfectly by leaning on the door before and i had to slam them shut after the weatherstripping was installed: par for the course. now, two years later, when it rains, which is like every day i have a puddle of water on my running boards from water leaking down thru the weatherstipping. anybody got any fixes? what do you think about getting thin diameter plastic upholstery piping material and gluing inside the weatherstipping to spread it out?

If the doors aren't mis-shaped due to previous collision damage and if the weatherstrip is in good condition, sounds like the doors jsut need adjusting. Only takes a tiny little gap in the seal to pour water into the car. Adjustment is done at the hinges where they are bolted to the body.

Where do you think the water is coming from? Doesn't take much of a crack.

no these came in one piece, but the bottoms were too long and i cut them and glued it back with glue in the middle. i actually think it is just going around the weatherstripping and running down onto the running board, but when i look real close it seems like it also has water on both sides of the weatherstripping at the break in the side at the area just above the top hinge on each door. there are water drops on the cab just below the top hinge on the pass. side as well.
