ST Door Top Plastic Tube

I have my ST door tops off and was wondering what purpose the plastic space tube serves. I am missing one in each door.

I think my seals were installed incorrectly. I've read about this somewhere but I can't find the thread, which way is "up"?

Plastic tubes are meant to keep it from rattling. They tend to fall out, I use a set of clear plastic tubing that I picked up at home depot and fits tightly on my badger door tops. I have not used the real door tops since getting the badgers a few years ago (well worth the investment), but i think for the seals, the flat side lays against the door and the "flaps" go up the door top sides, if I recall correctly.

On each door top, I have one gray and one black. I think I may have an extra set, but I am not sure what they cost. Or, you could try the rubber tube from Home Depot or Lowes.

I had all gray tubes, but after a wreck the body shop left the plastic tubes off the passenger side. I have been running the last few years with plastic tubes on the drivers side and no tubes on the passenger side and no adverse effects. The home depot idea is a good one though. I will have to remember that next Sept when I put the door tops on again.

Mike, yes the tubes we are talking about cover the stud on the door tops, before it is inserted in the door.

You are going to Uwharrie in April, right?
