Hi

Gave the 'van a wash yesterday.  Hosed it down (not pressure washer or direct water stream at door or seals) and this morning I noticed signs of water seepage/drops on the inside.  Please see pics.

the door fits well (as far as I can ascertain).  is there a door adjustment (can't see anything) or is it time for a new door seal?

thanks!

Before you go replacing seals etc. spray silicon on the seal and try again.

Maybe the seal is rolling a bit when you close the door.

This happens on my Maia as well when using the hosepipe.  Do not have the problem with normal rain or so.

It is just inside of the door frame.  Was like that om my Classique as well.

Sal dit ook probeer in die toekoms.  Dis wel nie erenstig nie.  Water is net daar op die deur se kosyn sigbaar niks verder binne nie.
