    Glue for holding on door seals

    Sounds like the one option left then.... How about some of the windscreen type bonding stuff inside the seal as well? It holds glass onto the side of vans and windscreens onto the front of cars after all.... (Caterhams use it to hold mudguards on their cars...)

    Glue for holding on door seals

    Steve, I have never had a seal fall off like that... The ones I've fitted have had a metal internal structure that clamps the rubber to the aperture... Have a look and see if you can't crimp the gap in the rubber tighter to hold while the sealant / glue of choice cures.... If needed.

    2006 defender 110 heater

    Flushing mine didn't work... I ended up replacing it and all was well.

    2006 defender 110 heater

    I would investigate if the matrix is blocked. I had a similar issue with my old 110 which caused issues with temperatures spiking when warming up. The Heater matrix is used as part of the open circuit before the thermostat opens. I tried running forced water though mine which suggested there was flow... Compared to a replacement matrix, it was a very restricted flow.... Water should flow through without issue, so adding a pump may not be the answer if the matrix needs replacing.

    Preparations for a Laid up 2004 Defender 110 TD5

    Just as a precaution, once you've change the oil, I would disengage the inertia button on the bulkhead and crank until your oil pressure light goes out. Re-connect the button to start of course. As above, after doing what you suggest, it'll probably turn and start with a new battery. If changing the fuel filter you will need to purge the fuel system a few times... (Ignition on and push the throttle pedal down fast 5 times. Engine management light should flash and you should hear a lot of gurgling.)

    Leak into footwell

    I agree.. Door seal around the area where it kinks behind the door strap... I also found that water was going around the windscreen rubber... Where the rubber lays on the frame. With corrosion under the rubber it was like a capillary action sucking water up and then dripping down inside the bulkhead. Of course, it found it's way to the same point and dripped on my right foot. I applied sealant around the rubber after getting a flat wood chisel in there and removing a lot of the corrosion. Next time the screen needs to come out I'll rub down and re-spray the frame.
