Any leads on new door seals?
Funny you mention chewed up. My door seals have an inordinate amount of wear on them. Mainly the faces that make contact with the door. In a few areas they're actually worn through.

I am the second owner, but I can't imagine what on earth anyone could have done to cause it.

@JMZ400 We're also the second owner of our 4Runner and I've never seen this happen to any of my other vehicles.

It's happening primarily on the bottom of the seals (rear hatch and front doors since the rear doors don't get nearly as much use). I am making a guess that it's due to the getting into and out of a taller car where the footwear probably catches the rubber.

After looking closer mine must be from driver and passenger getting in and out. Still weird.

This mod was popular in one of the Ford forums several years back. I did it on my 04 diesel van with electrical fish tape and some liquid dish washing soap for lube. I sold the van 8 years later with no visible deterioration of the door seals.

I don't know if this will spark a comment or not, but has anyone thought about this helping with the rear door latch issue? I have added the electrical tape to the latch to quiet the squeak (some time ago) and now it's starting to squeak again. Before I re-tape the latch, this thread came to mind. There was a comment above that it can leave the hatch door ajar a bit if you're not careful, so that makes me think it takes some of the movement out of the rear door.

Anyone experienced this? Or noticed the noise before adding the tubing, and not after?

Did anyone do the rear hatch? I too was leary of cutting the seal , maybe if there was a solid way of joining the ends back together.

are you using a special cleaner or spray or lubricant on it? I never have and have never experienced anything like this in my Toyotas. Garaged? or exposed to elements

In the electrical section at Lowes or Home Depot, there is a heavy liquid (soap like) used to pull wires with fish tape or Liquid Wrench (https://www.amazon.com/Liquid-Wrench...R62888Q8EE87QC) but dish soap will do it.
