Slight water leak passenger door

Hello my f20 is leaking at the passenger door when its raining heavily.....it is like a small squirt of water.....i will attach a photo soon.....i thought that the drains might be clogged and have used the air compressor to clean the drains in the door and in the engine bay but it was in vain.....is there some sort of easy fix or must i buy replacements (ofc i will buy for all doors because i am quite fond of my car and i dont like water squirting in even if its in small quantities

Burn the car (don't overlook a useful opportunity of having someone deserving locked in) and get another one. Play dry!

Seriously, in the picture I see nothing I would worry about (after a heavy rain in particular).

If looking for pleasure, don't cover your rig.

I've never driven it in a heavy enough rain to test out the seal yours has.

I have not driven it while it happened.....the water seems to come from that circle i have made in the last picture and from the lower part of that big seal

Maybe you can align the parts slightly better where they intersect, to make the transition smoother.

The water is coming inside only there where that large seal meets with that plastic cover....it is coming from underneath the seal not over the seal

Mine does that too. I just pray to the weather gods for the rain to be firm but consistent.

I checked all the seals, nothing seemed wrong and it is only a tiny bit of water.

I will try replacing certain parts and hopefully i can resolve this problem.....sadly it will have to wait until july.....(i wont go in my country to the dealership.....who knows....i may come back with even more leaks XD)when i go abroad

I will get to the bottom of this......i wont let it leak because i dont want the carpet to become smelly
