I have 02 ford van that leaks dust from the door seals mostly the rear.I called sportsmobile they said they have had this problem before and ford has not ever fixed the problem.I love my van but if i can't go off road without needing a dust mask i might as well park it. The seals look good i was wondering has anybody had this problem and how can i fix it Thanks
THANKS for all the help.I have noticed dust every time i was on dirt roads it became a problem on a resent deer scouting trip in Nevada. We drove 150 miles on dirt roads at the end i was ready to kick the windshild out and open the back doors.thanks again
One thing I noticed while doing the conversion is that the dust can come from other places then the door seals.
On my van the body and floor pannels where not properly joined and sealed, I could see light thru them
Bad work done by the Ford factory...
I sealed them from the inside and shall still do it from under to prevent the dirt going in and rusting it...

An old trick is to run the interior/heater fan to pressurize the interior of the van. Can help keep dust out.
You can use this method to find leaks also. Shut the doors, roll up the windows and turn the blower on. Then take a piece of tissue paper and run it around all the door seals and window seals, (from the outside of the vehicle). You will see the tissue (blowing in the wind) when you have a leaky seal.
