Evening all. I have recently bought a 1972 Series 3 and have discovered that it has twice let water in during heavy rain. I understand that this is not unusual but think it may be caused by corrosion in the door. Where the window part bolts to the door there is lots of play, making it impossible for a good seal between the door and the rubber. I think it would be solvable with a new part - if they are available.

I've attached an image.[img]https://attachment.outlook.live.net/owa/whitehead1972@hotmail.com/service.svc/s/GetAttachmentThumbnail?id=AQMkADAwATZiZmYAZC04NDgwLWVlAGE4LTAwAi0wMAoARgAAA2Y0%2B15RRitCpcJeamKxzYwHADPUO1QXrcxAg%2FeTeLbzVeQAAAIBDAAAADPUO1QXrcxAg%2FeTeLbzVeQAAdvQX%2FYAAAABEgAQADnDjqoX6%2BlNtmPxhJfh9LI%3D&thumbnailType=2&owa=outlook.live.com&scriptVer=20181001.04&isc=1&X-OWA-CANARY=siBI29mFB0G17BftFupGF5Cq5M1TLdYYYlViB3T6MjJSArVAFtX_0N1WAD5BgJywSN1CsBEh8Zw.&token=eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsImtpZCI6IjA2MDBGOUY2NzQ2MjA3MzdFNzM0MDRFMjg3QzQ1QTgxOENCN0NFQjgiLCJ4NXQiOiJCZ0Q1OW5SaUJ6Zm5OQVRpaDhSYWdZeTN6cmciLCJ0eXAiOiJKV1QifQ.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.RfpRXBaikWurLdaxwJW5dHshXfHR9YAQxND3NNAUi29BZ6U7ubgbqIrORBQmXjxpNnlfvkDfTMQk3pCNpNO2jUUJ4_JNouI07PDwdAStJqv2tjfAqyuCj6vDyqjXIymKtgqtb5x-g4d70D9f9coSzR428uaTcyuHTpJ_8rAONPdPPDNTGz6YibSk0idut6ydxB3IQ1Kh5VH00NkbHgyjLI23xLUcOlzeXr6Rz8IWZEMioexfnvht3O2IYQWMjxf3uOtc5eb6yllzSYHTBcrw_FS1xhINS6MpsZkUPWz19PD3pI7_TsM0hxGOMV9IRjBB26qBzcCK7f7zOXkJTKj7HA&animation=true[/img]

Evening whitehead 1972.
Yes, door tops are available from spares suppliers. They're unglazed so the club's plastic window channel is worth fitting. It's unlikely the bolts will undo easily and check the door bottom for corrosion where the top bolts to it.
I fitted Defender doors with wind up windows to mine but these doors are so easy to come by now although there were some at the Newbury sort out on September 30th last.
