But now you have water building up in the doorcard! Do you keep many fish in there?
True, i did unclip the doors so it was only being held at the top of the door card and had plenty of space to lift up do the job.
Hi guys I have used the "search" bar for this and the most common issue i see is with the front passenger footwells being wet, well, mine arent, both sides of the rear footwells are wet. I was having a good hoover and i noticed it so I put the heater on the floor to dry it out, seemed to dry out in about 10 minutes but it still worries me, any thoughts? Nobody with wet feet has been in the rear either..
If you'd read the main threads on the topic, you'd have noticed it affected rear footwells too.
Sorry, is that why you closed the thread?
Little need for yet another thread on the subject. Merged
Ok so is there any idea why just the rear footwells are wet and not the front?
could just be the rears have failed first. Other WILL follow at some point
Is the water just on the rear sill rubbers or the front aswell?
Door seal failure is totally random, sometimes it's the front, sometimes it's the back. On mine it was the driver's side, front and rear - passenger side unaffected.
Best thing to do is stop puzzling over why it's just your rears, read my guide (part 2 here) as well as all the info posted by everyone else here, buy the bits you need and get your doors sealed properly. It doesn't take long and really isn't difficult.
wouldnt the same thing happen if i used the rubber seal?
i have only siliconed the bottom and upto 3" vertically and not all the way around.
No because you are meant to put the sealant or rubber cord behind the metal door carrier behind the trim that you have gunked up, yours still leaks but now fills in the door card instead of the foot well.
The idea is to stop the door carrier leaking so that all the water runs to the bottom of the inside of the door and out of the drain holes.
Mine need doing, seems this cold snap has ended mine and as its p*ssing it down here today i have water beads in the front foot wells! Rubbish
So you didn't remove the metal carrier behind the door card.
Did you not read this thread?
Ha, i didn't want to be quite so brutal but that has brightened up my morning a little
The cold weather wrecked my DIY fix of the seal so have to do it again now!!!
The sealant I used is a nightmare to remove so looks like im goimg to have to remove the entire metal door carier this time!
Is it just a matter of loosening all the bolts and pulling it off or is there more to it than this?
Dont want to be breaking anything inside the door
This will help
That looks like a job and a half!!!
I did a couple of my doors sunday, really is a piece of cake to be honest so don't be put off , just get stuck in.
Ive done the door before but the seal I put on it didnt hold and I know from using the sealant before that its a complete nightmare to remove. Its the thought of removing the whole carrier that I dont like!
