Water in passenger footwell

Hi,

Hopefully someone can help,

My wife has a 2002 Beetle, there is no sunroof, I have removed the front plastic at the bottom of the front window and drains are clear and working well, I did notice when pouring water down the passenger door window it was draining out of the bottom of the door and away but there was quite a trickle coming out at the door hinge rubber, is this meant to happen? I have the door panel off but haven’t taken the internal workings of the door off, I didn’t really want to do that if this isn’t the cause, I am a bit of a novice and youtube can only get me so far, has anyone had a similar issue or similar experience with any other cars, any info would be great, look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

Philip

Are you sure it is water? Give it a smell, if it smells sweet, it is most likely coolant, which can leak into the passenger side footwell because the heater core is mounted in the dashboard on that side. If it is a leaking heater core, it is a pretty involved repair that involves removing large amounts of the dash. If it is, in fact, water, I would go to a self serve car wash and try to look under the dashboard while someone sprays down the passenger side of the windshield, hood, and door.

Yes I have the same problem with the same door, but have found that by rolling down the window completely with the door open I put my foot on the bottom of the inside of the door then grab the top of the door at the curved area I pull on it firmly and forcefully towards me that this has worked, sometimes this may have to be done a couple times before it is realigned completely. Also pulling the weather strip off the door frame and resetting it using the weather stripping glue that can be bought at any local auto parts store for around $10-$12. Like the other guy said though test the door with a high pressure water source like the ones found at a manual car wash or if you have a pressure washer of your own at home that would work also. Hope this helps you out if you have not already fixed the problem.
