This is to help stop wind noise that comes from the gap in the door when it is closed. You may notice a whistle noise from the door at high speeds if that part is not replaced. I think the piece would be called an air deflector door seal. If you’d like to get this fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can come identify the necessary part firsthand and suggest how to fix it from there.
