Re: Another Brera design fault is driving me nuts
Pininfarina engineering department was responsible for those parts, not Alfa and what you describe sounds typical of their "attention to detail". Anyway, the seals should have been specced with a PTFE coating, but it sounds like this has either been cost-reduced out, or perhaps in your case the door glass has for some reason rubbed through the layer.
Assuming the door & glass is applying the right pressure uniformly around the seal and the seal doesn't need changing then the best remedy is to spray the seals with Krytox spray. This is specialised stuff so you'll need to google it to find a supplier in your area. Don't waste your time with WD40 or the crappy silicone sprays from Halfords. You'll only spend time cleaning it all off again upto which point yhey will simply smear everywhere and put a nice dirty line on your elbow every time you stick your arm out of the window.
