Ok so I have had some clunking in the steering and some memory steer. Clucking is the intermediate steering shaft. Memory steer is from a sticking left strut bearing.

Went to the shop to sign some stuff (everything is covered under my extended warranty) and remembered my old laptop & autotap were on the floor in the driver side back. Grab them while I'm there and notice that the bag I've got them both in is SOAKED!!! DAMN IT. I have been noticing that on rainy days, that the inner seal on the front door always has water on the top of it to the outside of the door sill cover plate.

So once I get it back, I'll be pulling off the front and rear drivers door panels and resealing the moisture barrier. GRRR...

Does this occur in the area under the speaker? If so, then it'* a classic case of water deflector pulling away from the butyl caulk. I've had that problem both front doors, it'* a pain in the...........

I don't know where it'* coming from yet. I just noticed it. The car is still at the dealership waiting for a new ISS and strut bearing.
