Rain In My Door

Recommended Posts

Can somebody please explain to me why my door card is off as I sit in my car, I noticed that there is rain from the outside coming into my door as I see it collect at the bottom of the doors skin?

The door's card is off because I'm doing work on the door from the inside on closer examination during this rainstorm I notice rain coming in to the door? is there a way to prevent this while I have this all disassembled thank you

That is actually normal.  Make sure your door drains are clear!!!  Also be sure to put a new plastic water barrier between the door card and the door itself.  It should be glued to the door first, actually..  BMW makes a special tacky "rope" for this purpose.

When i had my door cards off, I found all kinds of nasty stuff in there, even a piece of 2x4. No wonder why there was a "rattling" in the passenger door that the PO was telling me about.


I made sure everything was cleaned, drains clear, and then I painted the inner part of my doors with an epoxy spray paint to prevent rust. I  found a clear contact paper type of thing in a dollar store for $2 a roll; it was basically 18" wide clear duct tape. I covered the back of my door cards with it before putting them back on and put some over the openings toward the bottom of my door to keep the moisture out. So far so good.


Still have that 2x4.
