Rain water inside the door

Lately I have noticed a flowing water sound that is coming from the front passenger door. First of all, how can I drain it? then how can I prevent that happening again?

Did that happen to anyone else?

If it isn't that, you probably have a busted heater core.

Re: Rain water inside the door

I was just reading that, thank you. It's not that one. I tested by opening and closing the door quickly while the car was turned off and heard the water inside. Will I have to take the panel off to get rid of the water?

These cars have water in the doors normally. After any good rain storm the drains on the bottom will leak for awhile, make sure yours are cleared. I've pulled my speakers out before to check and they were soaking wet on the back. Guess thats how it was designed

Re: Rain water inside the door

inside of the door i supposed to get wet, and the drain on the bottom of the door is supposed to be clear so any accumulated water doesnt collect in the door.
