Default Re: Chevrolet Beat - Rusting Door Panels! Update - Resolved by dealer

Hi, replacing the beadings wont help. They will also develop the sag and allow the water in and rsting cycle will repeat.

You can get Mseal clear silicone sealant in small tubes for around 30-40 bucks from most hardware shops. It wont affect the paint below as it is non reactive. Fill it in a 10ml syringe without needle and apply it in between the beading and door panel. Wait 10-15 mins for it to dry slightly and become stickier the press and rub the beading from the outside to make it stick. Keep a watch on it over the next hour and press and rub in any spots where its getting unstuck until the silicone dries
