Alfa 147-problems with seals
I have a 2002 147. The seal below the window on the drivers door is lifting at the 'back' end of the door (i.e. the side closest to the end of the car), roughly 2 inches in. You can push it back down, but it tends to lift again.
I recently washed the car in a drive thru, and the seal on the passenger side lifted about 10 inches in. I put it back into place, but after some driving at around 120 kmh the other night down a hill, it lifted again.
It's easy enough to push the seals back into place, but I would prefer if it didn't happen. Can anything be done? Is it worth going to a garage?
By the way, I've had my 147 for nearly a month now, and I love it. I find it so fast, and it was a real pleasure to drive it on a long journey (150 miles).
