Exactly: Litres of water in my rear nearside door too.
We've had some very heavy rain over here yesterday. When driving home from work I noticed a sloshing sound from the rear left side. And it was no small amount of water. The water was leaking heavily from the drainage holes. I made a video of it.
This morning all the water was drained. I went to the dealers and they dried it some more with compressed air.
Has anyone else had this problem? Is this normal? Any thoughts on the long term effects? Possible fixes?
Next week I'm scheduled for service (60.000km). I'll keep you posted on how my dealer handles this.
I do hope your problem is now resolved as it is a scarily accurate record of what happened to me.
I only noticed it last week after thinking the fuel tank seemed rather noisey on a few recent short trips.
Once the rubber plugs were removed... litres of water came out!
(An embarassingly long wait all with neighbours watching too)
you are so right that this situation is so wrong.
A little water can be expected, but should easily drain.
The worst of it is now the door appears to me to be stretched from the inside with the weight of the water. I don't know if I am imagining it but the door appears now to be slightly away from the window meaning the likelyhood of this re-occuring would be higher! It also feels more flimsy than the off side rear door. Is this usual?
Back to Honda under warranty for them to suggest a remedy I guess??
Honda main 0845 No just kept ringing and eventually went to answerphone. Details for a call back had not been actioned for hours and I managed to get through to my local Honda Dealer.
The local Honda staff just said water was normal for all cars - BUT SURELY NOT THAT MUCH - and they knew nothing of any "so call fault
". Stiil they are willing to take a look
I saw this on YouTube:
Maybe not my model but it looks like a very similar issue.
If anyone has similar experiences please take the time to post.
I would like to know if this is a design issue or just "my luck".
