A Wet Patch

Past few weeks I've noticed a wet patch (i.e. wet carpet) in the well floor behind the driver's seat of the Spider, adjacent to the seat belt anchor point. The motor (like the cat) gets left out all night, & I can't see any evidence of water seepage anywhere else (e.g. front footwells are nice & dry), so I'm assuming the door seals are not perfect & some of the wet November has found it's way in.
I note the various previous threads re water ingress, but this seems different, so have any other Spidermen (non-gender specific) had experience of this specific problem, & if so, any offers for a quick fix?

Try leaving the cat indoors at night, and see if the wet patch clears up.

Yes, had the same issue. There is a membrane inside the door that can get damaged. I had this replaced on my Spider and it cured the problem. Mine is outside too and has been fine since the membrane was replaced.
