I found some more water dripping from the rear passenger side door pad. even though I have repaired this once.

I bought some of the butyl tape and took it apart again. With the door pad off, I dumped a bunch of water on the window to see what happens. I found some small leaks around the rear of the vapor barrier but more so coming from the holes for the door pad clips.

To be on the safe side, I placed some of the butyl tape on those holes before I re-assembled the door pad.

Upon retesting, I did not see any drips. I will keep checking.

I also did a hard reset of the car (disconnected the battery) to clear any codes.

So far the problem has not re-occured. The next test will be to wash the car.
