after the rain we been haveing i noticed the bottom of my door trim on the pas side was dripping wet, i took the rubber bungs out to see if the door was full of water (even tho i shook the door no sound of water).

it happends every time it rains the pas door trim gets driping wet.

any ideas on what could be doing this, the drain slots are clear i havent taken the door trim off yet to see as when i remove the rubber bungs under the door they are bone dry.

Had a similar problem on my XD. Turned out the drain holes were actually blocked up with s**t.

Hey Bunter

Same prob here.

When I was changing the door trims to EF Fairmont ones on the weekend, I noticed the EB Fairmont trims were wet along the bottom.

I think it has to do with the weather seal around the bottom of the door.

I suspect that age and use, have compressed them so they don't seal like they should.

Only option may be to get some new ones, or use some from a newer car.
