Solution? Get in the car and enjoy it. smiling smiley

Fuzzies don't keep water out anyway, they help keep the window from rattling a little and prevent some large things from falling down in the door or quarter panels.

It doesn't leak, it's marking it's territory.

When car was new the fuzzies only did one thing other than keep debris out. On a damp morning you could crank the windows down then up and defog them or remove water droplets. Water always just went right thru and out the slots in the bottom of the door.
