Default FLOOD!

Okay, so previously I've mentioned that my driver door seal tends to leak a little during heavy rain, but today I reached to the back seat to pick up my CD case and I noticed it was totally soaked. As was the entire floor board from the back passenger side to the front passenger side. I mean the I picked up the rear floor mat and it was literally dripping water and its been 12 hours sinced it rained. I have never done anything with door seals before, can anyone give me the idiot'* guide to seals? Or does anyone think its not just the door seals? Thanks.

p.*.: Does water perm. damage CD'*?

You're going to have to remove the interior trim panels on the driver door & left rear door to get a close look at the water deflectors and the integrity of the butyl seals. There is simply no way around it. The other potential source for rain water infiltration is the sunroof drains. I think if you dry the CD'* they'll be alright.

You may want to follow the advice in the thread you had from this morning.


As stated...check the stickey at the top of common problems. There are many fixes there.

Requesting duplicate thread lockage.
