    It looks like my seals around the windscreen are starting to turn a brown colour in some places.

    Are they rotting, what is it?

    Is the car left out alot in the sunlight? if so then it could be due to this, the rubber "fades/discolours" over time from what I've seen.

    It's not garaged so i guess so but no more than any other car.

    Although someone did mention to me that if you used the antie freeze sprays to de-ice during the winter that they rot the rubber seals.....i cant think that i have used that much for it to happen though?
