    Hinge seals

    My van is stock and I am the third owner. My van does not have hinge seals on the front doors only side and rear. Are they supposed to be on front doors also

    Not necessarily - - - but a very good idea

    It's mainly because the "pass-through" style hinge gaskets won't fit them easily. The cargo doors have flat areas around the hinge opening to fit to. The front doors' metal is beveled around the hinge opening, making it impossible to fit the gasket (on some). You could use the stick-on type (if you can find them now. Clark's Corvair quit carrying them) for the front doors, to keep a uniform look with the rest of the van.
