My 95 LE has this grey ( like plumber's putty ) sticky stuff coming from behind the door panels onto the door seals on the back doors. I've cleaned it up a few times but it keeps oozing out and smearing unsuspecting passengers.
Does anyone else have this problem and what the heck is this stuff anyway?

The sticky gunk is used to hold down the plastic moisture barrier behind the door panel.

If you remove the door panel you'll see a plastic sheet covering the door.

Mine is on both rear doors.

Maybe the stuff they use has to be mixed and they didn't put in enough hardener.

The only permanent solution I can think of would be to remove the panel and replace the barrier. I guess one could use regular caulking to install the new plastic.

My 95 LE has the gray/black goo coming out of the rear doors as well. Only happens in the summer when its hot out. I just spray it down with WD40 and wipe it off before i wash the car....takes care of it until more runs out.
