Due to the old age of my car, weather and any other condition I can blame, the rubbers around my windows and doors appear to be seriously warn (not letting water in yet though), anybody know where I can get these replaced (in the midlands area) and how much I'd be looking at?

Tis a R420i MK2 '98

The window seals on 400's are never particularly good, the door membrane is the final line of defence against water ingress.

the door membrane is held to the door frame by a sort of sealant, which as age takes it toll loses it's adhesion. Water can then get in. In my case it maifested itself by a trickle through the door speaker grill.

Whip off the interior trim, and check the membrane, also brush waxoyl along the bottom of the door whilst you're in there (keeping the drain holes clear though)

Cheers,

CAM
