That's where I would start.

Had this issue on our departed 2003 sport.

Got some new seals and it cured it.

2003 1.8 SVT Sport (Why did I sell it - cos the wife said so!!!!)

It was a while back for our very first Eunos and I think at the time I got them from MX5 Parts.

Other providers are available, not sure if Andrew at Autolink can supply them so it's worth as,ing.

I bought a pair from eBay for £6 because I didn't have any neoprene the right thickness, they fit well
