This problem has been around for more than 30 
years.  You have incorrect door seals.  Remove 
them now, return them for refund, or see how far 
you can throw them.  See here: http://mgaguru.com/mgtech/interior/int108a.htm

There should be no rubber (none) between the 
fuzzy cover and the inner door panel.  The rubber 
part should be a "wing" that extends to fit 
around the outside perimiter of the door.  When 
you close the door, the rubber seal should not be 
visible inside the car.  See here:
