'87 300TD door seals quick question

Hi All,

So, I've determined at least one major source of water inside the car is the passenger side rear door. The wagon-specific door seal (passenger side, rear door) is quite expensive at Adsitco. I can't find anyone else who has it. Interestingly the regular '87 300D door seal is less than half the cost. I recall on this forum reading members posting that the rear doors on the '87s are the same, wagon and sedan. Do you reckon I can get away with buying the sedan door seal instead of paying double for the wagon seal? Thanks in advance!!

J

The front doors are the same between sedan and wagon (and almost everything else forward of the B-pillar).

Rear doors are totally different betwen a sedan and a wagon.

thanks!

Thanks, Jay_Bob! Guess I'll have to pony up. I'm sick of drying the car out after every rainstorm!
