Damn it, i had mine done under warranty the 1st time but the 2nd time they said bring it in and we'll take a look. they fixed it but said it was out of warranty and charged me £30 (car would only have been about 15 months old), i hate my local dealer!


If anyone else is in the same situation (where the dealer refuses to accept responsibility) - buy the door seal from a scrapyard for about £10.00, some araldite for £5.00 and do it yourself.

It's something that had the dealer refused to honour the warranty, I could and would have fixed myself. It's the principal more than anything though...you shouldn't have to.

Hi all, Cars now 20 months old and the seals are coming away again. Had them refixed at 1yr 2 weeks and ford garage said they would restick them as a good will gesture as car was over 1yr old. Hope iNath has still got the TSB still as I think I will need some ammo to get them to fix it FOC.

Just want to let you know that FMC will usually cover the cost of replacing trim items as a good will gesture if the item is just outside of warranty, but will also usually assist with any repairs if your vehicle is below 45 mths, your local dealer will usually do this for you without you having to contact FMC. It is based on loyalty so if you use your dealer for sales and service then there is no reason why they should not cover the full cost of this for you. However if you do not get a satisfactory result from the dealer you can contact Ford customer relationship center on 0845 841 1111 they will contact the dealer to discuss this with them on your behalf and try to get this sorted for you.

Two new seals fitted today FOC.
I think I would have had a battle with them if they hadn't
attempted a fix before which subsequently failed.

Thanks to iNath, I've had success with my local ford dealer to fix the door seal issue free of charge even though my fiesta is 19months old.

I've had no success at all with mine, my driver's side door seal has peeled 3 times and how do they fix it? By gluing it back on... It's shredded and glued all over the place and looks a complete mess. This is with going to 2 separate dealers after the first said it was up to me to pay for...

I've had the whole passenger door seal replaced once and it's still pealed away. Hopefully this sealent from the ford TSB will cure it.
I also need to check whats the warranty on this fix if it does start to peel again.

Don't bet on it, mine have shredded and warped after having been glued so many times, by Ford as well.

My brother recently picked up a 62 plate fiesta and they've now put wedges on the seals to stop them peeling up. May want to see if they can put one of these on yours?
