Are the doors suppose to be completely water tight? I opened my door today to track down some loose speaker wires and found some rain water (not a pool of it) in my door and my speaker was wet. Maybe I didn't seat the inner door panel correctly when I did my speaker installation, I don't know.

Anyone else have any water getting in their doors?

The doors are not water tight. Water will get past the seal at the window sill.

That is not good! I will have to check my doors tomorrow. I went through a car wash today and noticed that there was a small gap for the weather stripping. My 1973 Jaguar XJ6 has the same thing, fortunately the doors have not rusted out....

All doors are designed to shed some water down through and out the bottom. There is no practical way to make a COMPLETELY watertight seal from the window glass to the rubber strip and still allow the window to move. So a little water gets in and gets routed down and out drain holes at the bottom of the door. I haven't opened up this car yet but it doesn't sound right that your speaker would be all wet though.

Yukfoo recently posted a similar thread as yours. I don't think he found water in his door per se, but there was evidence water was leaking by the door seals.

As long as it's normal, I'm fine with it. I just ordered some foam speaker baffles to protect my speakers and I wrapped all my connections super tight with electrical tape. Thanks guys.

Water will always get inside the doors. The water comes from the black seal between the door and the window. Thats why the sheet metal has a rust proof coating and there are drain holes on the bottom of the door.
