Rubber door stopper

Ok, this is another silly question. You know the rubber wedge right below the door latch? Should that be angled so that it presses against the bottom or top part of the metal groove on the body?

My door is started making chirping noises and the piece of rubber does not appear to be pressing against anything. Its just loose..

Thanks,
Ed

Nobody knows how you angle this piece of rubber?

There is no adjustment for this part. Maybe it's the door seal. Try a little amour all type stuff on it and see if the noise goes away.

Hmm, If you loosen the two screws the chunk of rubber rotates about 20 degrees, plus it slides back and forth. I just need to know, if it should be pressing on the top of the bottom. My guess is the bottom so it lifts the door slightly off of the latch mechanism.

Sorry, Ed, I guess I am getting old. I don't remember mine having any slop in it.

I agree with Osso. No slop in mine either.

My '67 does have some adjustment/rotation. I would make it just high enough to support the weight of the door, not raise it.

I tightened the srews minimally, so that when I closed the door the rubber would "self align". Then I tightened the rubber block at that position.

There should be small washers which are a tight fit into the rubber. The holes in the rubber are tight to the crews. There is no real "adjustment".

Took some pics of my '67 door wedge mounts. Maybe the later cars don't have this or they have been painted over so much that they don't show.
the captive plate moves to allow aligning the wedge with it's guide.

You probably shouldn't. You'll develop a bad reputation, like me. I ran downstairs and snapped a pic of my spare door. It is disappointing to learn I was wrong. :-( Crrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap!

If you consider "the guy who does it right" a bad reputation, then I want that rap too! ;^) I generally precede my comments with ' I think' or 'I believe' to cover myself!

I work for a rather large corporation and I should know that! It's really the only way to cover your hinnie.
