Greetings
I've got a 1993 75 Series Toyota Landcruiser Troop Carrier. My front left door is filling up with water. I've cleaned the drain holes, but I need an outer weather seal to stop it happening again.

That is, the outside seal where the window winds down - where your elbow goes.

Any ideas where I can get one in Perth?

Maybe suss out rare spares they do the "restoration supplies" for car enthusiasts.

They do list land cruisers but seems to be older 40 series -so nothing ventured nothing gained

Rob, it's called a weather strip or door belt seal - and there's an inner and an outer seal, as well as LH door and RH door. Make sure you get the right one.

I've found Don Kyatt in Kewdale Rd quite good for a lot of run-of-the-mill parts, but I'm not sure that they would stock this particular part. They may say "they'll get it in" for you.

I wouldn't send you to Tonys Auto Wreckers, you'd need to mortgage the house to pay for it.

I have found the following mob are very good, they freight stuff to Perth rapidly, and they keep a very big range of spares at very reasonable prices.

HJ75 LH door outer weather strip

You could try a Toyota dealer, but I think you'll find their pricing is on a par with Tonys, and you'd have to wait while they shipped it in, anyway.

Cheers, Ron.

Those seals on many vehicles, nearly all, let water into the door. They have gaps at the ends anyway so water drops into the door.
If the door is filling up it must have blocked drains. I know you said you cleaned them but if it retains water in the bottom of the door then the drain/sa aren't/isn't working and open to flow water out.

Posssibly thick water or low gravity may mean some water stays in there.

You will have to remove the door trim and the plastic seal as you will find there is a heap of dirt in there that has now turned to mud. Be careful how you pull the trim or you will damage it at the retaining clips, you can buy or make a tool to do the job.

Clean it out and let it dry, then spray the insides of the door with something like lanotec or soft seal then replace the plastic inner water and dust seal and trim.

Zachary what I was meaning, not enough water in there to flush the crap out. Top seal won't change a thing.

Windows have drains because water in there is normal isn't it?

Sometimes the doors have a plug on the rear or front face and a hose in there will flush the mud out.

Forgot to say you will probably find the quarter window wind down window runner is pretty rusted as well and may need replacing, they are around $200 for a complete unit.

"Wind noise"? In a Troopy??????
You must be kidding. lol
It is hard enough to hear the passenger's voice, let alone wind noise.
But yes, Mr Toyota may have considered wind noise.

Nah, all cars have those seals, some more effective than others. It is more about keeping dust and small animals out, and some water. Although water will always get in and wash the dust out of the drains. Hopefully.
Some cars have a form of "valve" at the drain, probably to resist dust entry there, but they often fail and prevent water draining. Then the mud builds up. Then the rust starts.

Thanks everyone. I've sourced one from Don Kyatt. Good advice about spraying landline or similar inside the door.

Dr Rob
I think you mean "LAN O LINE", a derivative of sheep wool.
Hard to get the ABC Landline crew in there, but I admit they do spray a bit.
