Difficulty getting replacement rear door seal
#1
Hello ,
I have a Citroen Berlingo Multispace 2010 Diesel and having reduced some of the water ingress into the car via the lights I am now keen to replace the rear rubber door seal. Online I waited 2 months for Citroen Direct Parts and the part still hasn’t arrived so I got my money back. I contacted the local Citroen garage who despite the seal being continuous said that the seal comes in two parts and wanted £280. I think this is an outrageous price. Does anyone know of anywhere that can supply a seal at a reasonable price? I realise that it is an old car but surely someone must be making something that will do the job. 
Regards to all,
David.

Have you searched on Catcar info for the correct part number for the seal? [You need to put in your VIN to get accurate results]

https://www.catcar.info/citroen/?lang=en

The reason I ask is that with the correct part number you often get a lot more results on an internet search.

Using your example, I searched and found the part number for the rear door seal for my last Berlingo [a 2008 B9 Multispace XTR] and it gave the part number as 8707 H7

Note this was for my old vehicle you need to check the part number for your specific vehicle

Doing a search on this found a UK supplier that shows genuine PSA rear seals for my old vehicle at £122 inc VAT [still expensive for what it is]

You say your vehicle it is a two part seal so have you got a model with the opening rear glass as well as the tailgate, as I would have thought if you haven't got the rear opening glass the seal would be one piece? 

Finally is your rear seal the cause of your water ingress? I ask as having been on this forum for many years, I don't remember seeing many [any?] posts about the rear seal failing on a Multispace?

I had to replace the cab door seals on my tractor a while back and I think it was these people I got it from.

EBay is another  option once you know the name of the profile
It is on my to do list.
But not right at the top

Yes, the front door seals do wear, especially on the drivers side, I had to replace mine on my B9 Berlingo but it is quite unusual for the rear seal to go on a Multispace hatch, as they don't get that much wear [I can see happening it on a van due to use]

My b9 has barn doors but it's a one piece seal
I can't see it being too much trouble to make up a seal yourself if you'd researched the right size and shape
It's a van and has seven shades of sht knocked out of it but the seal still doesn't leak.
Perhaps there is indeed more to look at first.

Yes, it is a one piece continuous circle of rubber so don’t know why the dealer was insisting on a left and right seal. I will research all suggestions so thank you very much to all who contributed. I am having the car serviced soon so will discuss with the garage as well. You are very generous with your advice so thank you. I do take on board too that the seal may be ok.
Best wishes,
Dave.

Best way to look for a leak get someone with a hosepipe to soak the rear outside while you sit inside in the rear boot area to look for leaks.

Another potential area to look for a leak on the Multispace is the high level brake lamp unit at the top of the rear hatch, as that only has a thin foam seal around it.

You could also take advantage of someone doing this to wash your car for you.

I got a replacement seal for the drivers door at a scrapyard for £5, they had a minimum price of a fiver and didn't really know what to charge. Perfect condition, I got to check it before they removed it. I can't see why you shouldn't be able to do the same with the rear door.
