Forget about adhesives. Just to be safe, weld the doors shut and enter the car like a real NASCAR driver through the window.

Not sure if my dealership was told but they stuck these plastic clips that fit right on top of the existing flimsy ones on the weatherstrip. These are larger and fit snug into the predrilled holes.

Since I'm scheduled for this Sat to redo my alignment..I'll reinspect my weatherstripping tom after work and bring this up then.

I did notice the somewhat "insecure" anchoring of said rubber parts the first week I got the car..but didn't pay attention to it, really.

Someone mentioned the "Armor All" treatment.

Me, I'd rather wipe some silicone (spray applied to clean cloth) onto the weatherstripping.

Silicone preserves, prevents cracks and extends rubber lifespan. As mentioned in one post above on the "sticking" issue, when the weatherstrip is "seated" (door closed) against the body door frame and upon opening the door, silicone would even eliminate that "sticking" problem.

I've had the car 2months and Just noticed the same thing on my rear passenger door. Ugh! It's a pain to get out to the dealership! Oh, I also have multiple paint chips wondering if they might fix them too!

Its a mazda replacement part... Every owner that has this issue will have the stripping replaced with new bigger clips and stronger adhesive.

Yeah. That's my gripe too, rock chips.

One suggestion, try not to follow closely the vehicle in front of you. I read somewhere online one tip on how to avoid rock chips...try not to follow a vehicle in front of you closer than 165ft (kinda estimate; that is on the fast lane of fwy). It seems to work...in my case. I get little to no chips from the past succeeding weeks. I regularly inspect the car after I arrive home..to see if them white "spots" (my car is JBM) are bug splatters or chips. Sure enough...bug splats.

Would you consider the 3M paint protectant film? Trying to decide if I should do that myself.

I bet you wouldn't get chips leaving that much space, that's like 11 car lengths. I coudln't do that if I wanted to, the other motorists wouldn't allow it. I generally leave more space than most, and it often seems to be an invitation for someone to pull right in front of you, then slam on their brakes.

Commercial trucks in general and then the ones no mudflaps and/or uncovered loads are extra bad. Regular trucks and SUVs tend to be pretty bad as well, not to mention anyone that veers into service lanes aka debris land. Really though, if everyone else would just stay off the road I wouldn't have to worry about chips
