Re: Window Seal out of line and Water in the Door Pocket
Hi Schuuumi, I ve been having water leak problems at my 147 (different than yours) so i m a bit sensitive on this issue.. First of all, being a female has nothing to do with being able to fix many things on the car. It's just a matter of willing. I know many men being completely useless with their hands and brains. So back to our topic.. Either the rubber is wrong or not, the water shouldn't stay in the door. There are holes at the bottom of the door, and at the bottom of the trim, that let any water out. Inside the door there is an insulation white material (second pic) which devides the door in two sides. The "outter" side is normal to get water, since the window rubber seals do not waterproof the window completely. The water is kept at the outter side by that white material to protect the trim ( and keep the water out of the car). If this is torn or not fitted properly, water can come to the inner side of the door, and wet the door card. At this case, the door card has a hole at its lower edge, to let any water get out (actually it will come in the car). Its not normal to get water at the inner side of the door. Either the white insulation is torn, or the window's sealing is not fitted properly.
The easiest thing you can do, is look underneath the door and spot those holes, check that they re not blocked by dust or anything else, even though it seems weird on such a new car.
Anyway, since the driver's door sealing looks different from the other one, you should make the dealer fix it. The car is under warranty after all. I attached two pics of the door, and a pic of the rear side of the door card, in case they help you.
