Question Rubber window seal

Hi, has anyone replaced the rubber window seal that runs along the bottom of the windows on the driver and passenger doors? The seal on my rear passenger door has cracked and split vertically about 30mm from its end near the front passenger door. When the sun gets on it, it expands and catches the seal on the front passenger door making a clicking sound whenever you open the door. Where can I get the rubber seal and is it an easy job to do yourself.

1997 Marea HLX 2.0 20V saloon.

Re: Rubber window seal

I had this problem on my old marea after having the rear door window replaced. All i used to do was tap it back using a rubber mallet. That would work for about 3 weeks at a time. Used to be a right pain when you couldn't open the drivers door because of it.
Get one from a breakers.

Superglue it in place once replaced.

Re: Rubber window seal

very surprise that u guys also having the same problem. mine in Malaysia is having the same thing. looks like fiat engineering is very consistant and definately an engineering problem.

somehow, the strips like to move forward and touch the front door. i have to push the strip with my thumb like every 2-3weeks once. wondering what can i do to secure it from moving.
