Weatherseal Problem After Attempted Theft

Recommended Posts

Earlier this morning someone tried to steal my mk1 focus by bending the drivers door and getting their arm in to unlock it. Luckily they failed (thank god for dead locking!) and with the help of a local body shop I have managed to bend the door back to a drive-able position.

The problem is that although the weather seal touches the door it is not flush and water can get in. Is there anything I can do to fix this? I have tried a strip of electrical tape but it still lets water in and I don't want to bend the door too much and snap it. I have heard on some cars you can actually adjust the door is this the case with the focus? I would rather not have to replace the door as it is quite an old car and not really worth the money/time if there is an easier way.
