The corrosion may affect the operation of the electrical circuits in the door, such as the speakers, power windows, etc. To correct this condition, reseal the seams and inspect the door wiring connectors for corrosion. If necessary, replace the door wiring connector and the door wiring by following the service procedures described in this TSB.
