Interior Leak

When it rains really hard the carpet in the rear passenger side (right in front of the bench) gets soaked.

Coming home the other night and it was raining, a teardrop appeared down the plastic piece under the door near the front seat, so I have a pic of proof.

Cars going in the shop on Tuesday for them to take a look.

Caqn you post the pic?
I could be your rear passenger side window, rear windshield, or XM reciever (if your car is XM equiped). Just a few things to look at

thanks but... no xm, its not the seats that is wet, its the floor. The carpeting from below the door in the corner where the seats meet the floor (carpet not seat) is soaked... so its most likely door seals, but we'll see what they say.

Dealer says he's been water-testing the cars for 2 days and has found no leaks whatsoever. Asked me if maybe the door was cracked, but I don't understand how this could happen several times in several months and have different people in the car not be able to close my door.

I had my car to the dealer six times for a leak in the front drivers floor. They replaced the door seals and other plugs in the firewall and it still leaked . Then they tried blaming it on my aftermarket speaker because there is a lot of open space around the speaker. I put the stock speaker in and water still got in. They tried saying it was because the speaker was removed and put back. So he built some kind of shield to block it. I am sorry but there is no way that much water was getting through the speaker hole. I pulled the panel off myself and seen the water coming through the panel clip holes. I honestly think something keeps clogging the drain holes in my doors allowing the door to feel up and seep through the holes. It has stopped since the last visit to the dealer, but I am just waiting for it to start again. It has stopped for a while once before. I just settled with GM for a breach of warranty claim because of the issue.

Well TODAY they finally found the leak in the door (I bet they left it outside and bam this morning after the snow/rain there was water on the floor). So they gave the car back to me and they ordered new weatherstripping, should be here monday or tuesday.
