    me too. My passenger panel cracked in the middle of winter in the garage. the car was just sitting there for 1 month. One day it was fine. a few days later I popped inside to grab something and noticed it cracked.

    Also, the next time you put the window all the way down, ..., watch the panel flex in that area.
    I never put my windows down all the way anymore, & keep them a couple inches up if they need to go down for some reason. Don't have the cracks yet.
    But I've already got a spare set of panels that I've done the staple/screw replacement on.
    Flex that panel a few times & just watch it move, ...

    EVERYONE who doesn't have cracked door panels should immediately go out and "fix" them so that they never crack. These crack-free panels are gonna be really hard to come by in the future so we should preserve the ones we have now.
