2003 GTV

2004 GTV owner looking to buy new door rubber

I'm new to this forum and a new owner of a 2004 GTV (face lift model). I have noticed that air leaks in from the windows whilst driving at 60mph or more. I had a look and the windows and both driver and passenger has small gaps between the glass and door rubber. I have tried to adjust the door by moving the door latch but to no avail. Has anybody got any ideas how to solve this or where to but new door rubber seals from.
Thanks Craig

Re: 2004 GTV owner looking to buy new door rubber

This is a common problem. It can be cured, or at least reduced by adjusting the height and/or angle of the glass. This site has a good guide... How To... Fix Wind Noise Issues on GTV/Spiders there's more info in the workshop manual if you have one.

If you're going to have a go, give it a good amount of time as it's basically a case of trial and error to find the best position. it took me almost a whole saturday driving up and down a nearby dual carriageway. a squirt of silicon spray around the seals also has a good temporary effect.
