Is there a problem with leak doors on F20?

Hi there!

Does anybody know about problems with leak doors on F20?

Today on heavy rain I see some drops arround the gasket inside of the car. At first I thought it was from embarking the car and wiped away. But on my tour I saw drops on the gasket again.

Current I notice it only on the left front door but it drops down to the controller of the window lifter and that's not cool.

So... I'm very unhappy with that and hope to get an answer here.

Thanks in advance!

Take it to your dealer to sort out. I've gone through some serious rain in Cape Town this winter, and haven't once had any issue with even the smallest of leaks.

Not sure which part of the interior is the 'gasket' however not had any issue, even when water jets were pointed at the seals. Take it to your dealer to investigate.

Hi eezzee,

I mean this.

Sorry, if it isn't the right term.

Take it in, it shouldn't leak there at all.
