Does your window bind at all when your raise/lower it?
It looks like the water strip is binding closely to the window. Exept for 1 inch at the rear part of window have a tiny clearance. But even where the strip looks tight, i can see water going trough it watching it from the inside.

It might be my fault because in the winter i am very lazy scraping ice of my windows. I push the window down button instead, using my weather strip as a ice remover . So maybe its this habbit that causes the strip wear down?
