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.

Re: Back Door Leak
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

carefully unbolt the underhood fusebox assembly and turn it upsidedown there should be a plastic cover on the bottom remove it look for burnt wires inside be careful & buy a test light start moving wires around & see what happens
Do not leave key in ignition while doing this! First get the hood open and disconnect the battery from positive side. All doors closed lock or unlocked dosen't matter. Wait about 2-3 min.carefully reconnect the positive cable and tighten,car should go into combination of locking modes.Next your key push one time lock and hold unlock for 2-3 seconds or push the unlock twice.Locks should function properly lock to unlock and reversed.Normaly this resets all electronics to ECU.
Tell your husband to call the Toyota dealership back, and ask them if you vehicle is involved in a "Special Policy Campaign". Toyota IS replacing the doors for FREE with the issue you speak of, We have replaced 15 or 20 so far here, at no cost to the owners. If the dealer gives you the run-around, call the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331 and explain your situation. The CEC will guide you the rest of the way to get your car fixed.
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?
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.
