Your Mitsubishi vehicle's windows and doors contain a system of rubber and soft plastic slats, lining their edges. It's called weather stripping, and it does two things. For one, it helps keep seepage out of the interior. Secondly, it helps ensure that the doors close as quietly as they can.
Sadly, no weather strip lasts forever; age and the effects of the elements can wear one out over time. Luckily, there are some signs that'll indicate it: airflow through otherwise closed doors and/or windows; in the channels where the strips go, finding water stains; and cracked and/or brittle strips themselves. Notice any, and you should replace the strip in question immediately. Installing new ones is easy: just remove the old screws, strip the adhesive from the channels, dry the channels, apply some new adhesive, and put on and align fresh strips, firmly pressing them in. Afterward, all you have to do is put the screws back in.
Of course, you may need to follow slightly different steps for your Mitsubishi model, and you should definitely use new versions of the same parts and strip lengths that you had before. For best results, though, install the genuine article. Mitsubishi manufactures weather strips specifically for the car or SUV you drive, after all. That's a promise that aftermarket brands may not be able to make.
