Default rubber door seals

I have a 2002 t/e with 29k miles, It's my understanding that the 2001 pt's had rubber door seals attached on the underside of each door. And that D/C did away with these after the first year.How many of you have to wash inside all four door seals and jams, due to dust, dirt, etc collecting inside the doors due to no rubber seals after 2001? Can you order these seals and install on 2002+ pt's? Just thought I'd toss this in, to see what everybody else thought about this issue.

Had a 2002 and always washed the inner door sill panels. Do the same thing on my 2006. Of course, I have done that with most of the cars I have owned. Wife didn't like to wash her clothes when she dragged them on the sills.

Also, one of the areas the rust first is under the doors.

Sorry, but I have a 2001 (Born on date August 00) and even if I do have the seals your talking about, it still gets dirty and wet (after it rains) on the sills and jams.
