door seal leaking

my driver's door seal has sprung a leak somewhere - can't really see where it's coming from other than the bit where it all seems to be draining out at the underside of the door and into the footwell

anyone got any ideas how a) to find the source of the leak and b) fix it?

Could it be the internal membrane that has failed allowing water to enter car instead of being expelled through drain? Check drain holes and remove door card to see if polythene membrane is still attached.

Mines done this this morning.... always had an issue with a bit of water on kick plate but never on carpet, this morning have damp carpet though. Is it easy to get replacement bung is it more a case of make your own??

my door panel has been off loads of time at the dealers so i presume its more likely to be that but worth checking every alternative!
