    On the back side of the pannel the black rubber window seal is held on by staples. You must pull the third staple from the back of the pannel( back is the outter most part of door when open) The staples are different from the 93-97 in which they add stress causing the plastic to split. Use can use hot glue or simaliar after removing the staple.
    I live 20 mins North on 21 outside of city limits.

    My 01 has a hair over 70k, and have been like that for the past year. It's one of the common symptoms that all our f-bodies face sooner or later.....

    I believe it is only on 97+ I have never seen them on an early fourth gen. I also have a 96 formula and it has no cracks. This is not a problem for the Camaro.

    Mine have all been 93-95s, so must be the newer ones only.
