So just like the title says the front of my driver's side door is rubbing up against a plastic insulation panel in the door jam. Has anybody already had experience with this and if so what was the solution. Dealership won't see me till mid November so in the meantime I figure I'll cover that part of the door with some clear packing tape to avoid damage to paint.

can you push the insulation / plastic in at all? may just be a little out of area.

I've tried, the edge doesn't seem to really attach to anything. The edge along the plastic also looks like its been curling up in certain areas. I'll post a picture when I get the chance.

There is no lip, that area of the quarter panel is flush. I figure that the insulation panel will need to be replaced, just wondering whether it will end up being a reoccurring problem.

I had this same issue on the passenger side. I removed the fender to get to the plastic and trimmed off the plastic that was curled up and catching on the door.

Figured I'd post an update since I'm bad with that kind of stuff...Took the car into the dealership, they initially claimed the damage was done due to the door lip guard i installed on the part of the door the plastic was clipping. After a bit of back and forth they admitted that there would be no point to installing a lip guard on a part of the door that swings in and cut off a chunk of the insulation panel. Unfortunately daily driving the car like that for a month has warped the panel pretty bad and I can see that it still touches when opening, just doesn't make the sound. Dealership refused to replace the panel. Panel itself only costs about $50 from HyundaiPartsDeal.com, figure I'll try to DIY the panel replacement because the next available dealership in my area is over 100 miles away and just not worth gas/time. If anybody has any tips/tricks on replacement it would be much appreciated.
