Default Water in the door chassis

Hi, When I successfuly repair my ground buss harness yesterday, I've seen under the door hit bar, a hole about an inch wide with a sealant tape on it. I've remove it to see whats under and I discovered a lot of water in the bottom of the door chassis. So I must have a water leak, but WHERE? really no idea how the water goes there. Sometimes when I'm acelarating or braking, i'm hearing water passing back and forth. I first though that it was the half empty giant windshield washer tank. Now i know that its water in the car floor frame or something like that. I dont know how to name this place...Help will be appreciate

Best bet would be to get someone to help you pour water with a garden hose on the car while you are inside looking for leaks. Best to start at top of windshield then work your way to the top of the doors, the trunk, and then the firewall area. I'm looking for a leak also.

the door frame has holes in the bottom of the door to let the water excape that runs down the window or whatever....you need to remove that tape to let that water drain out....there is a seal on the body to keep that draining water out of the inside of the car....

remove that tape and get that water out of there
