Not trying to start an argument here...


The water appears to be draining out of the drain holes but it is getting trapped between the outer weather stripping and the inner seals (the one on the door and the car's body). No water is entering the cabin. It's all sitting, for want of a better term; on top of the sill plate.

I guess my point is that the splash of water which comes when I open the door shouldn't it be able to find its way to the outside? it does not seem to drain from the door cards or the inner side/whatever you want to call the side of the barrier where it should not be. It's like it drains through the drain holes and then has nowhere to go.

Meh, I'm going to open the thing up tomorrow and have a look anyway, I guess an easy way to check is to examine the barrier - fix it if there are any issues and then run the hose over it.

Thanks for the comments so far guys.
