I presume you mean the seals inside (behind) the door trim? They are held on by mastic, and can be re-seated once you have gained access and performed the adjustment.

I would try to disturb as little as possible, but check the following for torx screw fittings to get the door trim off;
door pull (one under a small flap)
door latch (one under a small flap) - this then gets fed through the trim.
door trim surround (on the scenic there's one at the very bottom - so have a good check over before trying to remove).

Hope that helps - don't be put off, its quite straightforward if you proceed in a methodical manner (give yourself around an hour to do this though - you don't want to be rushed).


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
