Q: Door leaking in rain

asked by on

The driver's door leaks when it rains.

If the vehicle has not been involved in an accident that could cause the door to be misaligned, even after a body repair, the problem could be a damaged weatherstrip gasket. This is common in older vehicles as the weatherstripping tears or comes loose. A certified mechanic should be able to inspect and determine if the gasket needs replacing or if the door needs adjusting.
