Unhappy Leaking door seals

Well I've just noticed the driver side door seal has started leaking half way between the A and B pillar. Nothing major, just a few drips but it's managed to pool a bit in the door handle.

Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and is it potentially something I could sort myself? I'm thinking as a worst case it'll need a new door seal but the car's only 6 months old...any ideas what can cause this??

Thanks in advance.

Re: Leaking door seals

Are you sure it's not just droplets remaining after the door has been closed?

Yes, positive. I've got into the car through the passenger side to get something out of the glove box and that's when I've noticed. It's also collected a bit of water in the door handle, say 1-2mm so definitely dripping continuously.

I can't see anything wrong with the seal either, it seems to sit in exactly the right place, and isn't deformed or damaged in any way...

Re: Leaking door seals

Next step would be to get door adjusted if seals are all ok.
