Water inside the door is NORMAL. What needs to happen is to OPEN the drains at the base of the door. Water enters around the glass and ABSOLUTELY cannot be stopped, so, alternatively, each and every door on each and every car is designed to accept water inside the door. You may notice a plastic sheet just inside of the door panel.....This keeps the water off of the (damageable) door panel, and directs the water to the bottom of the door.
Normal condition.

    I know "some" is normal- I'm talking about enough that it "slouches" around. The first time I heard it, I thought I might have forgotten an ice chest in the back of the car. Is this much normal? Thanks for your help!!

    No, that sounds like too much, but volume only happens if the door IS NOT DRAINING. Resolve the draining issue. there should be two or more slots that allow the water to drain.

SOURCE: water was leaking inside on passengers side, now

HVAC drain tube was blocked and condensation could not drain to the outside of the vehicle

as a result the water pooled inside the HVAC case leaking on the inside and killing your blower motor and probably blower motor resistor

clear the drain, replace the blower and resistor and you'll be back in business

SOURCE: water leak from passenger side

I believe if you take a close look at your windshield seal at the top corner of the drivers side, you'll see a gap. Please get back to me on this ASAP. The reason for the urgency is that this water can infiltrate the padding under the driverside kick panel sound insulator causing a major short.

Had the same issue and the dealer was able to replace the cheap plastic pins which hold the exterior handle housing in place. It may be a TSB/Recall issue to make sure to ask for a freebie.

Passenger window goes up and down on its own after rain, kia sedona


educated guess .is rain is getting into a plugin inside your door shorting out and making it move better get on this a kid could have thier head sticking out and it hurts them or worse. remove panel spray the plug in with wd40 then black tape the plug in and a bit of the wires past each side hopefully this will keep it dry. if thats not it water is getting into the window switches on the inside of door do simalr action to prevent water getting on them tape plastic over back side it may have been removed from a previous repair.

Cannot open passenger door from the inside, works ok from outside


Must be the internal door linkage has slipped off from the inside door handle. You will have to get the door panel removed to fix that linkage. This is all assuming it's a front passenger door you're having the problem with.
Rear doors have child safety locks built in that prevent the doors from opening from the inside, to keep the little ones from opening the rear doors accidentally and tumbling out. Those you can just slide a safety lever to allow it to be opened from the inside.

Roof leak water comes in on passenger side


This could be a coulple things. Try putting a piece of paper or dollar bill in top of doors either front or back where ever the water is coming in. Shut the door and the paper should not pull through. If does just open the door and put you window down, please your knee by inside handle of the door and pull the top in a little. Keep doing this little at a time until is tight. Also check the weatherstrips they may need replaced.

Passenger window is off track


Bmw states to disconnect the battery before disconnecting any airbag system. Just take off the negative side and wait 5 minutes for the system to discharge. There are 3 10mm bolts holding the side airbag in place. Pop out the plug connector with a small screwdriver and your good to go. Also be careful when peeling back the grey door membrane. It keeps the water from entering the inside of the vehicle when it rains or during a car wash. If it tears when removing replacement is reccomended or water could leak in and soak your carpet. Leaves a nasty smell.

I have a 1993 Landcruiser, there is water in driver side passenger door and I'm sure how the water is getting in the door and it does not appear to being evaporing, now there is water on the floor board on...


Water does enter the door past the window rubber seals. The seals are only designed to keep the water out of the interior. As the water accumulates inside the door, it is supposed to drain out thru holes provided in the bottom of the door panel, on the inside edge. What you have are clogged drain holes in the door. Open the door, and look for some oval looking holes; use a small, thin screwdriver or a piece of stiff wire to defeat the mud or debris thjat is clogging up the drain holes... This will fix your issue.
A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated!
