    98Eldo weather stripping

    I have the proverbial Eldorado window whistle. Passenger side. Weather stripping GM part #25691010. Discontinued. Web search no luck. I am assuming that a used seal is not the way to go. There is a small spot in the corner where the rubber lip has pulled back just enough to break the seal and I don't think it can be altered. Too much time,sun,and pressure to reverse. Any ideas?

    Either the door/window needs to be shimmed, or you can shim the back of the weatherstrip itself to make better contact with the glass. Inspect the gap along the entire window, see if the door has sagged at the latch side. If all looks good, just pull out the seal a little and use either double side foam tape or something similar (even a folded card stock) to shim the seal closer to the glass.

    Passenger Eldo whistle is not nearly as common as driver side, but I have the same issue with my '98... But it has bigger problems right now... . Good advice above... I had success adjusting the door striker slightly. It is certainly annoying, isn't it?!

    Check the classifieds if you still need a weatherstrip.

    I had the same whistling noise on the both sides of my 98 Eldo and couldn't tell where it was coming from.
    Used an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper sliding it between the window and seal to find the space. Found that most of it was coming from the seal on on the B Pillar (vertical edge of the window near the end of the door).
    When I pulled the weather stripping off, I found the track has slotted holes where the screws are so you can adjust it outward which fixed it.

    just an fyi in case you have the same pb
