    '97 Eldo Water Deflectors

    I'm trying to fix the driver's door panel on my '97 Eldo and found that the water deflector is disintegrating and interfering with the fit of the panel. I've looked on a few of the on-line parts sites and can't find the deflector anywhere in the door sections. Anybody know if these are available and what the part number might be?

    Thanks.

    Are you talking about the rubber like membrane on door undeer door panel?
    If so you're not going to find them, you can replace and several members here have used heavy plastic/butle tape and other methods.

    No, it is the waffle pattern sheet that covers the whole door, the FSM calls it a Water Deflector, strange it doesn't show up in the parts diagram. Just came back from the pick-a-part and found one in fairly good condition for $2.93

    Is it made of green, ridiculously brittle plastic by any chance?
