Looking for door hinge seals for 1985 GM van #721559

Having an issue tracking down the door hinge seals for my 1985 G20. Not the flat foam gasket type seals that are on the body-side of the hinge, but on the doors themselves, there is a rectangular molded rubber grommet of sorts that goes between the hinge and the door panel. The hinge passes through the middle of this seal. I can't seem to find anything online and my originals are hard and cracking. Any ideas?


They would fit into these holes on both back doors and both side barn doors:

Edit: I do see that Steele Rubber Products has something that looks similar, but doesn't show as compatible.. Also $45 for a set of 4.. shocked

Will those work?

He's looking for the seal plate for the hinge...

I went to a JY to get the exact thing & the guy made me buy all the hinges for $20 when I needed 4 seals.

Nope, I need the other side. The one you're showing is the flat gasket that mounts to the body-side of the hinge. I need the other side where the hinge goes into the door.


Here's a better visual:

Not my van, I grabbed this from elsewhere on the forum, but you can see the seals I need on the barn doors (not on the body, but on the doors themselves), the seals are black where the hinges enter the door panel:

Its the same plate, the one you talking about are on my van already. Was just giving a pic of what you needed. Some are a full "O" some are a "U", open on one end.

How many are you looking for ?

That's weird.. On mine, there is only the plate on the body side of the hinge, the door side only has the rubber seal, no plate. The old seals were a full rectangle and went all the way around the hinge.

I think I have a couple of the old seals, so I'll take pictures tonight, that's what I probably should have done from the start.. worms

I would need 8 total.

there are "U" shaped plates.

I stand corrected the ones on the door are a rubber seal without the steel trim plate ....

Either way the JY is your best bet .. or make a set like we did for the foam seal.


That Chevy from black79gmc in the for sale section that you posted to would be a great place to get them.

Is there a part number on the seals?

Thanks Frscke! Those are the ones! I'm just worried that any used seals I get will have the same problem as my originals.. They are hard and cracking/crumbling. The vans I've found in the local junk yards are also the same. It would be nice to have new rubber there but I'm afraid nobody makes them anymore.

After doing a bit more research.. Here are some similarly shaped grommets that I've found.. I've tried crossing part numbers and whatnot, but I can't verify that they are correct for a van.. luckily, the Steelerubber site has dimensions, so I'll check mine tonight and hopefully get lucky
