Okay guys here's something which has baffled me and all the mecahnics I've talked to. Once in pouring rain I was sitting inside my Baleno, waiting for the rain to subside before I could get out, when I noticed water coming in from this slit where two plastic parts holding the carpet meet under the door. I know I'm poor at explaining the situation so I've included a pic in which you can see the slit, and the direction of flow of water. Yes, the water was FLOWING into my car. I put a piece of cloth into the space between the door and the footboard and it was soon soaked. I talked to some denters but they all refused that water could get into the car from that place. I wish I had made a video of the water so that the denters wouldn't think of me as a liar, drunkard or daydreamer But anyway, that was in Monsoons last year. In the recent rains I had to keep my car outside for a while and when I got back the carpet was all soaked. I wasn't in the car while it was raining but I'm sure the water came through the same slit. Can anyone suggest what could be going wrong? Why isn't water draining out of the car instead of coming in? I'd be thankful for any hints.
By the way, I''ve checked all the rubber seals between the body and the door and all in best shape. No cracks or holes. My own feeling is that the the door is misaligned so that there is not enough space between the door and the body underside the door. As a result the water accumulates there instead of flowing down, its level raises and eventually it gets into the footboard through that slit. That said, I'm NOT going to ask a denter to move a well-settled and trouble-free door unless some experienced guys here can assure me that I'm thinking on the right lines
