147 door leak

Hi Guys,

I've got a leak coming from my driver's door, letting water in.

I've taken the door panel off, and have discovered that the water is getting onto the back of the sealing membrane, and is running down that, and into the car.

What can I do about this?

If I seal the join between the membrane and the inner door skin, along the bottom of the door, then it'll just build up there.

Here's a picture that should show whet I mean...

There is a drain hole in the bottom of the door. Make sure its not blocked.

Re: 147 door leak

The membrane is meant to be sealed to the door, to prevent just what is happening to you. As Rockhopper said, the water will drain out of the bottom of the door.
I had the same problem in my old 156. Either use some silicon sealant to re-attach the the membrane or buy a new one - IIRC it was about £20 from the dealers.
