    I'm convinced there was a thread on here that mentioned a specific silicon sealant to use on the various door, window, and roof seals. I think it was called something like "Stumpf" and was German but I can't find it now. Can anyone point me in the right direction please.

    With apologies to our German friends if that means something obscene.

    Silicone rubber treatment is called "Gummipflege"
    But the word you are probably looking for is (Unterboden-)Schutz, which is undercoating.

    Both products are nothing special, its a generic name. I hope this is what you are looking for

    I think you were after - Einszett 1Z Rubber Care Stick Gummi Pflege

    You may want to try DuPont Krytox. This was the default rubber seal rejuvenator for VAG.

    I have used it on my Copen seals since purchase. The seals have survived the extreme Australian summers well. I clean the seals with soapy water, gently scrubbing with a toothbrush, and rinse before application.

    Thanks guys. Touch wood, I've only got a couple of minor leaks at the front of each window where the seal has the additional drain at the top. I gave it a wipe and it seems to have cured it but I've gor the Einszett 1Z Rubber Care Stick from Amazon and will treat it with that first (after wash and rinse).
