The driver's door on my 2001 Outback is hard to open and close. The problem seems to be that the seal is grabbing the upper right corner of the door when opening and closing. I've checked the door adjustment and it seems to be ok. Sometimes it seems that pushing the seal up helps, but the problem constantly returns. Anyone had a similar problem?

The seal is pressed into a rail that surrounds the windows. It sounds like it has jumped out the rail. The best way to get it back in, and stay there, is to undo it from one end, like the leading edge of the driver's door, two/three plastic plugs and then start tugging it gently from the rail until you pass the point it's lose at. Then, start squeezing it back in.

Good luck!

I had this problem on my 03 Baja. It is under warranty so I took it to the dealer...they said that the window was a little bit out of adjustment. They apparently took apart the door panel and realigned it a bit. Works fine now...
