Tonight i sat in my car ready to take out the central lock mechanisim when i noticed it was full of water. I was raining a lot. Looks like the water is going through the water strip at the bottom of the window. The window has a edge below where water i dripping from, and this edge is right over the central lock mechanism. It's dripping right at the electrical power plug for the central lock motor. Bummer FORD!!!

Is my waterstrip worn out? And is it easy to change it?

Is it normal with water inside the doors?

This explains my short circuit, because i only have problems when it rains.

Any help would be great.

Here are pictures. First picture is most important. Look how wet it gets. The one in the middle is taken from top where the window goes inside the door. In the right picture i have dried the central lock mechanism out with paper.
