Is your Expy missing this?

This is on the drivers door b pillar. The rubber piece is missing. This happened on my 07 and I have seen other Expys missing this piece. Anyone else have this problem?

funny you post this up. i've had wind noise around my driver door since i've owned the truck (feb 08, 2005 EB). the dealer and my body guy both kept it for a day each and couldn't find where the wind was entering.

well, i took matters into my own hands and found the piece you are referring to imbedded down inside the black piece of trim. so, i dug it out, filled the void with black RTV, reinserted the piece or black ABS, and let it dry. i barely have any wind noise now.

check to see if your little piece of ABS simply fell down into the trim.

Yep, mine fell into the trim. Dealer pulled it out, put some silicone, and Im good to go.

I learned about this missing part when the guy that washes my car cut his hand on the edge of the molding. What is black RTV?

It's black silicone. RTV stands for Room Temperature Vulcanized. He used that because the piece was missing. My dealer used clear silicone and it looks fine.

Berry, how do you come up with this stuff?? Hah.. You are the man when it comes to noticing flaws in the Expedition! I just checked both my driver and passenger doors and both have the piece pushed into the trim. The whole design looks like an after thought.. This is definitely the kind of thing that separates the japs and the germans from ford, poor fit and finish. I will be mentioning it to the dealer at my next oil change as I am definitely not going to spend my own time and money trying to seal those holes.

Don't get me wrong I love my truck, but petty little things like this **** me off.. They just should not happen!

Had the same problem...used some Clear RTV and fixed them...but it's not a great fit on the piece to begin with.

Yeah, the rubber piece is way to small to fill that void.

I don't know how I find these things. I guess it's my OCD!
