Excellent post Canonman.

Another tip for "P" door seals (e.g. Clio2) is to use some draught excluder the foam stuff that comes on a roll about 5mm thick (white foam rather than the grey sponge type) and using electricians wire snake/fish tape/ access rods etc carefully pull the foam through the "P" in the door seal (you might need to remove the seal and straighten it out to do this, oh and if self adhesive DONT remove the backing tape.)

This makes the "P" a bit thicker when the door shuts and stops draughts, wind noise and water penetration from the seal.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
