Door panel ?

I'm going to replace the seals on the outside of the window. Do I need to buy new fasteners to reinstall the door Panel or can I just reuse the old ones.
Thanks ! Any tips are welcome too!

Are you talking about the inner/outer window seals that are at the top of the door that wipes the window when you open/close it? They have clips imbedded in them that snap into holes in the door. You do not need to pull the door apart to install them.

When the window is rolled up it is the seal at the bottom of the window on the outside. the rubber is dryrotted and water gets down in the door. I was told it screws in and my piece has holes in it. It's a full steel door.

Go to the Quadratec website and look up this part number 55014.0105

Spec out the little clips on that seal they fit into slots on the inside lip of the door panel. The inner seal works the same way.

Alright I checked that part(outside scrubber) and I see what u mean now. I have some that came with the jeep and after looking at those I would say the ones I got are for a different application. I was just going by what the previous owner said on the installation of those scrubbers. He said I would have to cut, etc to get to fit.
Thanks for the info laybackman.

No problem.

The door panels have keepers that can be reused if you are careful. If you split them, they can be replaced. You can get generic ones at the local pats store. First, take off the door pull strap, handle and arm rest and remove the screw from the middle of the door handle recess. Note the upper inner door panel slides down into place and work the door handle through it to remove it.

Then from the bottom of the door panel work you way around the door panel gently pulling it away from the door itself with a putty knife or other flat object.
