2004 STI 6MT (2005)
Wondered why every time I open the door I'm greeted with the smell of fuel.
And realized that 3/8" tubing is useless because it's too big and pushes my windows out considerably. I guess 2/8" tubing maybe?I tried a piece of tubing first. Helped but didn't fix.
I used the method with large pliers to carefully pinch the gussets back together. I think I found it searching here? Works great!
I used channel lock style pliers with very long handles. The long handles made it easier to control the force (versus normal pliers or vise-grips). It is very easy for the pliers to slip and pull the rubber loose from the metal underneath, but I managed to do both sides with only 1 small tear easily touched up with black RTV. You have to kind of push in on the gusset at the same time you are squeezing the handles together. No disassembly and no parts to buy! great.
