Door seal around B pillar fallen out

Post by chelly62 » Wed Oct 17, 2018 7:21 pm

All door seals (window guide seals) have been changed once already for excessive noise on my M140i.

One seal (OSR door) has now become loose, falling away from the vertical groove in the B pillar trim on leading edge of rear door (vertical front door edge rests on it).

The fitted replacement seal ended up being exactly the same. Dealer had to add some type of sealant to hold it in place. The NSR door seal is still held extremely tight. I have no idea what's going on, never seen the like before. Are spare parts not up to scratch? Since he seal was loose it made a ticking noise (of rubber moving), but this is still present with the new seal.

Has anyone else had a B pillar door seal loosening in this way after such a short space of time? My understanding is that they are held in by pressure and not ordinarily bonded in place. Pretty poor design.
