The back door leaks and we have taken vehicle to 2 Toyota dealers who have told us it is a "cosmetic" problem and they don't take care of those problems. We have an extended warranty on this vehicle that should cover such problems.

Read your extended warranty book you will find it does not cover this problem the door should be able to be adjusted or moved to stop the leak i do it with a peice of paper between the door and the seal you should not be able to pull the paper out

have someone spray the top and area around the suspected leak area with a misting sprayer type of hose nozzle, u suit in the car and try to locate the leak, that is how we do it at the dealer, 30 years of doing this and know of no easier way unless there is a factory bulletin to explain this leak (TSB), have u consulted the dealer to ask this question about a possible TSB for the leak?
Hi, we also have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 and developed a leak in the front driver's side of the car. After much research, we discovered that the drain wells from our sun/moon roof were clogged. If you have one of these, I suggest that you open the sun roof and look carefully. You will notice some tiny little holes in front and in the rear of the sun/moon roof tracks. Over time, these become clogged with dust and debris. You need to find a long, sturdy piece of thin wire and run it down the holes. To test if you have properly unclogged these, take a small amount of water and pour it down the holes. You should see water coming out of the drain wells under the car around the rear of the front tires. Hope this helps.
more than likely to be either front or rear windscreen, water seeps under carpets to lowest part of floor, if vehicle is a hatch back check the channel at top of door opening is not blocked with leaves or debris as this can cause water to overflow and into vehicle
I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.
