Door seal?

My door seal has torn or missing pieces which allows water to run down the inside of the door. Anyone ever replace this? Ideas/suggestions appreciated

Make a louver with a 1-2" overhang. 45 degree angle. I did this on all my outside doors, furnaces, hot water heater, etc. No more water inside. I used aluminum from hardware store.

Honestly, it looks like your seal separated at the seam! Both angles are 45 degrees. Try pulling them back in place into the corner and look for something that would seal rubber to fuse them back together. There are all kinds of sealants out there, even superglue would hold it for a while.

Sometimes it seems impossible to find a matching piece of rubber or trim. I'll search as much as I can, but if you don't know what it's called, it's tough. That's when I come here and post a photo of it and hope to get lucky. The trim piece you posted, certainly has more angles/turns to it then what you photographed. If you can, open the door and get a better photo of the trim shape. It may help identify it better by someone who has bought the same piece.

As mentioned, you might want to install a chrome, aluminum or painted rain gutter over the door, to help the overall situation.

Here is something that may work.

The rubber has shrunk. I believe they stretch it sometimes when installed to make matters worse. You might be able to stretch it back and super glue. There are some flexible made for rubber ones here IC 2000 is made for gluing rubber tires to nylon rims doesn't get much harder to fasten. Your local hobby shop may have these or Amazon
