Try getting apc underneath the rubber using a detailing brush, you'll probably have to do it quite a few times to get it cleanish then I tend to use Wolfgang exterior trim sealant.

Sorry one of the pictures didnt load on my phone only seen the one with the rubber. Around the window you'll have to clean all the way around with apc but no trim sealant. If you wax your van it will make the marks easier to clean

It's usually a mixture of the rubber breaking down and dirt that's been trapped underneath.. Joys of a white van
