Door gaskets from eBay item number:362033826784

The fit was very decent. On 2 handles I had to trim a little excess rubber off. The factory mold must have left a little bit of extra rubber on the shipped part. I was overly picky so I took some sharp sheers to make it perfect. If you did not trim the excess, most likely nobody would notice.

Get one from BavAuto, its $75 but worth every penny.

There are cheaper tools on Amazon and such.

That's looks a lot safer than mine that turns into a 2lb death wheel if the threaded rod is damaged while using the impact. http://mistools.net/WebRoot/Store4/S...616_141138.jpg

I'd let you borrow mine if you were local Mike. I'll be in Sac 10/1 if you want to wait it out.

Used it twice already, works great. 24mm gear wrench is a must for this.
