Kangoo sliding door window rubbers / rust!

We have just purchased our first Renault Kangoo which we love and find very practical.
However yesterday after looking around the body work I noticed that the two rear sliding door window rubbers were bulging out in places as though they were not put in properly.
I looked closer to see little pieces of rust underneath the rubber.I am left wondering whether this is what is causing the rubbers to bulge out.
Are the Kangoo sliding door window rubbers prone to this because rust has settled in behind them.
I saw another Kangoo today and that was the same.
What I want to know is there anyway to take pout the rubbers and clean up behind them.
I appreciate any help.

Re: Kangoo sliding door window rubbers / rust!

It will probably be the rubber seals themself that are rusting on the inside as they may contain metal inside them. This was / is an all too common problem on the Alfa Romeo 156 weather strips that fit between the glass and the door.
