Hi,

I have a major issue with my passenger door driver side wether strip.. (so I believe) whenever we get really bad rainfall the next day I have to empty out my drains otherwise it sounds like a titanic going down..
I have included a photograph of the gap between the strip and window. I think this is the cause because the other windows seem tighter against the strip.

Can anyone plz help me (hopefully before the next rainfall we get)

if the water is getting out of the drain holes in the door then it should not be a worry.
if it is getting back into the car and the carpet is wet then it is.

if you park on a slope maybe park the other way round and see if that affects it.

Ye the water comes out of the drain hole only when I remove the plug though.. (not sure if it's suppose to bleed though the plug) it's only happening on the 1 door (the one behind drivers side)

called honda about the same issue on my civic 2006. they just told me it was a design fault and to remove the rubber bungs from the bottom of the doors so the water can drain out.

Most likely the little rubber plugs that cover the drain holes at the bottom of the doors, these rubber plugs can get blocked with dirt very easily and will stop water from escaping through the drain holes, there was actually a bulletin from Honda years ago to remove them.

Here is the picture of the plug I was talking about, would it be better if I just removed them all permanently??

I was thinking of permanently removing all the rubber plugs and trying my best to clean the inside with compressed air and not sure about the wax thing? Does that protect it even more from rust and where can I find this?

Thx in advance
