Sorry can't get any pics posted but the leak is just behind the door pillar on the bottom of the seal about 75mm in from the bottom of the window , I know it sounds silly but the water seems to be getting in at exactly the same place on both sides ! Tried pushing the rubber down between the glass when shut but it's not really done much , my friend who used to work for Citroën is puzzled too , Mark

I have the same problem, but only at the left side. Don't know where it is coming from either.

Spoke to my friend today who is an ex Citroën mechanic and he said an option was to tap the metalwork that the rubber seal pushes onto with a piece of wood and a hammer , I know it sounds brutal but he says this should solve it ? Did think of a rubber seal of a pug 306 but there not available anymore like the Zx ones aarrgh ! Will keep updating on the progress , Mark

I've not tried this method yet but hopefully it might work , just waiting for my mechanic mate to have a look at the heater as it blows warm through the fascia vents but cold to the screen , he says it's a common problem on the Zx , will keep you updated , how's the weather up there Dougy ! I hope your well wrapped up if your working on the car , Mark

Was going to say about using a xsara coupe seal to see if that works. But you may have solved it.
